STRATUM 2008 CHARDONNAY
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.

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