Closeburn Chardonnay 2012
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.
The wine has aromas of white blossom and ripe citrus fruits, with some dried fruit characters showing through. The taste is full of fresh, ripe nectarines. Nicely balanced fruit and acid leads to a flavourful finish.
