Tasting Notes

A characteristically fruity Chardonnay made to be a perfect early drinking style wine. A medium-bodied wine with fruit-forward flavours and a long, dry finish. The light use of oak during fermentation has given rise to a soft and smooth body and elegant mouthfeel. A light and fruity Chardonnay that is best enjoyed with lightly dressed carb salad or spring vegetable risotto. 13% Alcohol. 

Winemakers Notes

The Sherwood Estate 2018 Chardonnay was produced from selected parcels of fruit grown on our Stirling and Glasnevin vineyards in Waipara, North Canterbury. The fruit was machine harvested during mid-April, in excellent condition, and left on skins for a short period. The fruit was gently pressed then racked to barrel (75%) and stainless tanks (25%) for indigenous fermentation and 6 months lees aging. The parcels were then blended together, lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
