Butterworth Te Muna Chardonnay 2020

Sweet lifted oak, cedar and spices jump from the glass, followed by apricot and peach. Richly textured with the racy acid line Te Muna is famous for. There's length and breadth and a chalky, oyster shell finish.

Very limited availability.


Winemakers Notes

The grapes were hand-harvested, then whole bunch pressed straight to barrel without settling. The juice was fermented in one 500 Litre Puncheon and three older barriques to bring complexity. Once dry, the wine went through Malolactic fermentation while receiving 4 lees stirs over 4 months. The wine sat without sulphur until one week before blending in February. The wine received no fining, and only a light filtration before bottling.
