Wild yeast and lees contact adds complexity and depth. White florals, lime citrus, crème brulee and poached nectarine.
Passage Rock Waiheke Island Reserve Chardonnay 2018 4.5 Stars Michael Cooper
This wine was fermented using wild indigenous yeasts and cultured yeast in a selection of new and used barrels. Malolactic fermentation adds complexity and depth. Aromas of white florals, mandarin and creamy brulee. Fresh and crisp palate exhibiting nashi pear, caramelized citrus and cashew with a creamy mouthfeel, toasty undertones and a lingering finish.
Bright yellow/pale gold, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested and fermented and matured in large French oak casks. Fresh and mouthfilling, it has strong, ripe stone-fruit and toasty oak flavours, showing very good complexity. Already very expressive, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition.
