Flying Sheep Chardonnay 2015

Flying Sheep Chardonnay 2015

Chardonnay; Hawkes Bay provides ripeness with a wonderful lemon and grapefruit aromatic, yet achieving ripeness on the palate at moderate sugar and balanced acidity.

Our flying sheep Chardonnay has it’s philosophical origins in Chablis. We set out to make a Hawkes Bay version with all the complexity, minerality and palate length seen in these typically unwooded Chardonnays. We’re looking for stonefruit and lime aromas leading into a palate that is balanced and elegant and fruit driven. This wine shows the benefit of an extended time on lees and is complex with nougat and mineral notes. The effect picking gapes with a slightly higher acidity is that we can encourage an complete malolactic fermentation and in doing so develop a finish that is long and balanced by a lively natural acidity.
