Chardonnay Domaine Rewa, Central Otago 2014
Domaine Rewa, Central Otago
We are thrilled to be working with Domaine Rewa, an up and coming producer from the Central Otago. With a tiny 5.5ha single vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range on the unique fluvial terrace, owner Philippa Fourbet, together with winemaker Pete Bartle, is pursuing her lifelong dream of producing refined wines from her homeland in Central Otago inspired by the elegance of Burgundy. These superbly pure and perfumed wines are produced following a biodynamic regime in order to fashion the best possible expressions of their Central Otago terroir.
Coming from a tiny single vineyard plot.
Inspired by owner Philippa's the glistening, pale gold Chardonnay Domaine Rewa 2014 has fragrant aromas of nectarine, white peach, melon and Seville orange with a touch of flinty minerality adding complexity. Matured for 9 months in 25% new oak on the lees, this wine is rich and mouth-filling with a balanced acidity and notes of butterscotch, vanilla and toasted hazelnuts on the palate. Its creamy texture lingers on the finish with enticing flavours of stone fruits. .
