Tasting Notes



Winemakers Notes

The Stratum 2008 Chardonnay was produced from fruit grown at our
Glasnevin Vineyard in Waipara, North Canterbury.

The fruit was harvested in excellent condition in mid April, 2008. Selecting only lightly pressed juice, a/3 of the blend was fermented at a higher temperature with indigenous yeast. The balance was cool fermented with selected yeast strains. This un-oaked Chardonnay was then lightly fined, filtered and bottled.

The Stratum 2008 Chardonnay displays complex stone fruit and melon
aromatics with a touch of complexity. The palate is full and round with a long,
persistent finish.

This is a beautifully balance wine that would compliment most dining occasions.
