The bouquet from this stunning vintage displays luscious aromas of melon, white peach and nectarine, while the complexity of new French oak adds textue and spice, opening out to an elegant, well-balanced palate with a lingering and classical finish. A wonderful and delicious Marlborough Chardonnay worthy of any setting.
Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed directly to 33% new French barriques, with the remaining juice pressed directly to older French barriques, then fermented with indigenous yeasts.
Misty Cove Signature Chardonnay can be enjoyed with a wide range of dishes including lobster, salmon, chicken, pork, roast vegetables or simply on its own.

Beautifully ripe and elegantly complex, the wine shows golden peach, rockmelon, nougat, vanilla and hazelnut aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and silky. It is generous and flavoursome, while remaining balanced and structured with a lingering creamy finish. At its best: now to 2021.
