Why do we love this wine?
The Clayvin vineyard is considered one of New Zealand’s most decorated single vineyards. High-density vine plantings, from over 30 years ago - now certified organic. Everything here is done with meticulous care, attention and love. From taking the chardonnay and hand picking to basket pressing, and fermenting in new oak using the most expensive, high-quality French barrels or, as the label indicates ‘barrique’. Tell you what, this is one ‘blingy’ chardy.
The 2016 ‘barrique’ is exclusive to the ‘fo, so you can only find it here. The mouth-filling richness of this wine is utterly sensational. A rich, weighty, textural and full-bodied style that has the wine geeks at Mofo HQ swooning. While showing off its oaky side, the flavours work in perfect harmony. Peach, lemon curd, brioche and grapefruit, with honey and ginger spice. Wow. If rich chardy is your thing, then our advice is to snatch up some of this, now.
Tell me what you really think.
