Black Estate Waipara Chardonnay 2010

21-Jun-2011
Since the Naish family purchased the Black Estate in 2007, the quality and consistency of the wines has taken a leap forward. The home vineyard, planted in 1993 is 8 ha, planted equally to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (the Riesling fruit contracted) is providing exciting wines. This is the tenth release of a Chardonnay under the Black Estate label, from 16 y.o. Mendoza vines, and the maturity of the plants is reckoned to provide the extra depth. Winemaker Nicholas Brown is certainly especially adept with the fruit. www.blackestate.co.nz
