Carrick Bannockburn Chardonnay

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

This is classic Chardonnay, inviting and unctuous. It is barrel fermented, and aged in oak for around 10 months, which gives the wine time to develop the delicious nutty and biscuity characters. Perfect for enjoying slightly chilled with cheese, a creamy pasta or just by itself after a long day.

A tightly structured chardonnay; the delicately lifted bouquet shows Gala apple, grapefruit, dried grass, oatmeal and almond characters. The palate displays elegant weight and rounded mouthfeel, backed by firm acidity, offering sturdy structure and a persistent chalky finish. At its best: now to 2023. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

The Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay is our top Chardonnay and the name refers to the extended time it spends in barrel before bottling - Extended Barrel Maturation. Hand-picked from fruit grown on the top and lower terraces of our Cairnmuir road vineyard. It is a textural wine with a lovely citrus line and unctuous peach toast notes. Think large glass in front of the fire type of wine. Or a wine to impress at a dinner party. We think it tastes great with roast chicken and mushroom risotto.
