Judge & Jury Chardonnay is a top pick among our offerings, grown on The Tiger, Viper and Masons Vineyard in the Cromwell Basin.
The Viper Vineyard imparts subtle lemon notes and a satisfying weight to the blend, while the Mason Vineyard contributes rich fruitiness, a textured profile, and depth that beautifully rounds out the palate.
With low crop yields, a brief period of skin contact prior to pressing, and fermentation in Acacia tree barrels rather than traditional oak, this wine emerges as a truly exceptional creation. It embodies purity, a refreshing quality, and a mineral-driven essence that showcases the cool climate fruit, with the oak playing a subtle supporting role in the background.
Judge & Jury Chardonnay is not just promising for the future; it's already in its prime and ready to be savoured now.
