Ant Moore Signature
Chardonnay vintage 2018
273 in stock
Aromas of dried Apricots, tobacco and citrus, the concentration on the nose is delightful. The subtle use of French oak has enabled to wine to feel warming and yet fruit dominated at the same time.
The palate is rich and rounded with a long line and balance acidity. An unctuous palate that with each sip the wine lingers.
The 2016 Vintage was typical of Marlborough with long dry spells of warm days for ripening and cooler nights toward Autumn, perfect for developing the classic Marlborough Wines.
Low yields; hand harvested; whole bunch pressed.
Fermented in old oak predominantly and aged on lees allowing natural malolactic fermentation with very little winemaker intervention.
Pairs beautifully with smoked chicken pasta, antipasto platter and roasted pork belly.
From The Wine maker
“Please enjoy on its own or with any summer occasion.

It’s gorgeously fruited and richly expressed on the nose showing golden peach, mango, vanillin oak and subtle butterscotch notes. The palate displays excellent weight and generous mouthfeel, beautifully complemented by creamy texture and well-balanced acidity, making it fabulously drinkable.
