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 2019 growing season was perfect producing ripe fruit with wonderful natural acidity.
Partial wild fermentation and ageing in top quality French oak has added aromas of biscuit and pastry to the grilled grapefruit and yellow orchard fruit. There is a pureness and vitality to both the nose and palate. The fleshy and full flavoured palate has pink grapefruit and ripe lemon flavours, with fantastic fresh acidity throughout the lengthy finish.
A crisp, complex, ageworthy cool-climate Chardonnay style that partners well with roast chicken and veal. Drink now to 2029.
