winemaker’s comments:
Closeburn is our un-oaked Chardonnay. The fruit is grown throughout the Central Otago region and exhibits the regions natural elegant fruit flavours and mineral complexity. The wine is fermented in tank to retain its bright fruit. It is then left to rest on its yeast lees to gain some doughy complexity and softness. This is a refreshing full-bodied wine, unencumbered by oak and superb with food.

wine description:
With attractive aromas of ripe citrus and fresh figs, combined with fragrant dried herb and floral notes, this wine is interesting and complex from the get go. On the palate there is generous fruit weight and texture with flavours of citrus and white stone fruits to the fore; and the calm mineral acid delivers a long and flavourful finish.
