Pōtiki meaning ‘last born’ in Maori is blended from a selection of newer plantings on the Martinborough Terrace. More reactive to the vintage conditions than our older established vines, this first release 2018 Pōtiki Chardonnay is engaging and vibrant.
Full aromas of yellow skinned peach, buttery French toast and aniseed overflow on the nose. The palate is creamy and open, with notes of pureed apple and custard, the finish long and lingering. Barrel fermented in 300 litre puncheons with indigenous yeasts, this is delicious drinking now.
