2016 The Darling Chardonnay

2016 The Darling Chardonnay


New Zealand

This wine has been made in an old world style with minimal intervention. It is soft with great texture and has flavors of citrus, melon, white peach and a touch of flint. A refined mid palate, with great length of flavor. This wine will drink well anytime complementing seafood, as well as soft and hard cheese.

Winemaker's notes

The grapes were sourced from a single organic vineyard in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough. The vines were low yielding giving great concentration of flavor. The grapes were lightly crushed and pressed while still cold, retaining their pure flavors. The wine was fermented in oak allowing subtle texture and complexity to be added. Natural yeast fermented the wine slowly to keep the softness and texture of the wine. It was aged on lees in oak with minimal intervention.

Slow-roasted Pork Belly

A roast crisp pork belly is entertaining at its best, without the fuss. Roast pork belly works best with a wine that has a high level of acidity plus a touch of sweetness – a young Pinot Noir or Dry Riesling would be perfect.
