Carrick Bannockburn Chardonnay
Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago
The 2018 Carrick Bannockburn Chardonnay is a blend of three different parcels and two clones – Mendoza and Clone 6. It is fermented and matrured in French oak barriques for 12 months, 13% new oak was used. Once blended the barrels spent a further 9 months in vat to allow time for the wines to stabilize naturally.
Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay
Cairnmuir Vineyard, 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.
