Squawking Magpie Counting Crows Chardonnay 2015

Bright, light golden-hued yellow color. This has a full, broad and bold nose of ripe tropical fruit intermingling with savory citrus fruits and yellow stonefruits, melded with layers of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak, lifted fermentation esters and buttery and butterscotch-like MLF.

$33.00

"This is the wine to reach for on Friday evening after a long hard week. Large glass and a piece of aged gruyere." - Cameron Douglas (MS).

Winemaker's Notes

This is a single vineyard barrel aged Chardonnay from the Alluvialle soils of Hawke's Bay. Hand selected fruit with 12 months maturation in new and one-year-old French oak, the wine is beautifully textured, full-bodied with butterscotch and spicy oak flavors. Displaying mineral tones from the Terroir, this wine has a delightful and very long finish. 100% Malolactic, single vineyard, hand selected Clone 95 and Mendoza. Barrel fermented and barrel aged 30% new and 70% one-year-old French Oak.
