Centennial Winery Block Chardonnay tends to be complex and well-structured in style, and always highlights our cool-climate vineyard characteristics. More traditional winemaking techniques are used to enhance balance and complexity. The 2017/2018 growing season was perfect producing ripe fruit with wonderful natural acidity.
Partial wild fermentation in top quality French oak has added smoky almond yeast, grilled grapefruit, and a hint of reduction. There is a pureness and vitality to both the nose and palate.
The elegant palate has juicy grapefruit, ripe lemon and nectarine flavours, with fantastic fresh acidity throughout the long finish.
A crisp, complex, ageworthy cool-climate Chardonnay style that partners well with roast chicken and veal. Drink now to 2028.
