The Landing Chardonnay | 2019

$48.00NZD$518.40NZD

We believe that New Zealand has the ability to grow some of the best Chardonnay in the world. Our ambition is to create a distinct Northland style that embraces vintage variation and is true to our site.

The 2019 Vintage has opened the window to just how great Northland Chardonnay from our site can be.  This perfect growing season produced an austere, elegant and refined style.  Attractive citrus and stone fruit aromatics sit perfectly with a hint of nutty-spice.  On the palate, the wine has a full profile with more white stone fruit and spice. A racy stony minerality creates a lovely long finish with drying tannins that just beg for your glass to be filled again.

The Landing Vineyard on the Purerua Peninsula has been farmed for over a century, the Chardonnay vines have been selectively planted on the dry north-facing slopes that naturally moderate vigour ensuring high quality, well-balanced wines.

Harvested from a mix of Chardonnay clones B95, 548, and UCD15 vines growing in the greywacke clay soils of the Purerua Peninsula, the 2019 vintage came from an outstanding growing season. The grapes for this Chardonnay were hand-picked between February 16 and March 8.
