Akarua de Bettencor Chardonnay 2020

The inaugural release for this single block organic Chardonnay from our De-Bettencor vineyard. Produced from the oldest organic vines in Central Otago this vineyard is tucked neatly under the ancient glacial slopes of the Pisa Ranges.

A beautifully elegant and harmonious wine - hand-harvested and whole bunch pressed with extended lees contact and aged in neutral french oak for 18 months.

Aromas of white smoke, golden apple & grilled Central Otago peach.

A members only limited series - only 50 cases produced. ... read more
