Roaring Meg Chardonnay 2017
The cooler character of the season comes through with clean citrus notes, white peach floral elements and a saline minerality. Supple, riper citrus and greengage plum introduce the wine onto the palate. The wine is textured and focused with weight that defies its ripeness; the finish of the wine is focused by the wines minerality and saline edge.
Roaring Meg Central Otago Chardonnay is optimal drinking from release to four years of age.
Maximum purchase: 6 Bottles per order
A very interesting season - overall we ended up with an average amount of heat even though the season had a distinctly cool bend to it. A very warm, wet spring kicked off the growing season in style with very early bud-burst. Just as we were entering into flowering, the weather deteriorated with very cool weather being the norm right through late December. This impacted on flowering with lower than average yields.
