The 2010 vintage in Marlborough continued on the fine run of vintages from this region. Bud burst was slightly earlier than 2009 due to an unseasonally warm August. Thankfully, given this early start we didn't experience any frost issues but there were a number of cool nights to keep everyone on edge. Fruit set was slightly below the average, meaning the crops were naturally low and would prove invaluable later in the season. By late January the summer remained cooler than normal, meaning the Growing Degree Days tracked 1 -2 weeks behind the long term average and with some midsummer rain caused some concern about the ability of crops to fully ripen. By early March what we've come to expect as the typical Marlborough autumn - fresh cool nights and sunny cloudless days allowed the moderately cropped vines to reach full ripeness and be harvested right on schedule in early April. All of the fruit came from a low yielding single vineyard in the Lower Wairau. The grapes were harvested to enhance the fruit purity then destemmed, crushed and pressed with minimal skin contact. The juice was racked with light lees to the fermentation vessels and fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent fruit flavours. The fermentation continued until the Chardonnay was dry. Following fermentation the wine was lees stirred for 4 months to enhance texture and complexity before blending and prepared for bottling. Alc/Vol 13%.
