Te Whare Ra
SV 5182 Chardonnay 2020 750ml Limited Release
The growing conditions here in Marlborough, mean that it is well-suited for the production of world class Chardonnay. We have a relatively cool climate which results in a long, even growing season which is great for flavour development. This means that we can make a style of Chardonnay which balances concentration and complexity, whilst retaining the finesse that a higher natural acidity brings – which is unashamedly the style we like to drink!
Metro Magazine Top 50 Wines - Top Ten Another cracking chardonnay and another wonderful wine from Te Whare Ra. This chardonnay had it all, from smoky oaky notes to church incense, grilled stonefruit, baked custard, lemon curd with a touch of spice, some flinty characters and mānuka honey. If that wasn’t enough, it all sits on a full-bodied but remarkably fresh and juicy palate — “like fresh morning fog,” wrote Dale.
Sam Kim - 97 Points Immensely complex and enticing, the wine shows ripe stone fruit, roasted hazelnut, French pastry, lemon zest and a hint of vanilla notes on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that's plush and refined at the same time. Brilliantly framed by bright acidity, making it wonderfully structured for a graceful development. From their home vineyard in Renwick. Certified organic. At its best: 2023 to 2034.
