2022 Boathouse Chardonnay


Tasting Notes
Poised and elegant, showing aromas of ripe stonefruit and citrus with a mineral complexity. The palate has a fruit-forward expression softened by subtle oak and malolactic fermentation, balanced with juicy acidity on the finish.
  • Vineyard & Winemaking

    Hand-picked, then whole-bunch pressed before overnight settling in tank. Fermented in French oak barriques and puncheons.

    11 months in barrel before blending to tank for 6 months further ageing. Crossflow filtered before bottling.

  • Vintage Notes

    A wetter than average early spring set up the vines with excellent canopies and good bunch weights. Summer was mostly dry and very warm although two events of strong winds and rainfall in early February delayed the ripening. The fruit showed excellent resilience to hang through and ripened well in great condition.

    CAM DOUGLAS | 93/100

    Flavours of peaches, apple and vanilla cream-custard are presented through a satin-cream texture and contrasting acid line. Medium+ acid line adds vibrato and youthful, salivating the palate and revealing a light saline quality. Very fine tannins and a cashew-nut butter quality enhance the mouthfeel and complexity. Well made, youthful and ready to drink from 2024 through 2028. Complete and ready.
