Black Estate Home Chardonnay 2021
This elegant Chardonnay is densely packed with flavour and freshness. Harmonious and sophisticated, it comes from the north-facing Home Block, planted with the Mendoza clone by Russell Black in 1994. It was hand picked, fermented with vineyard derived yeast and aged in large format oak for 8 months, with full malolactic fermentation.
Black Estate is passionately owned and run by Pen Naish, Nicholas Brown and their families. They make wines from 3 organically certified, biodynamic practicing vineyards in North Canterbury. It’s an evolving commitment to making excellent wine with true respect for their place. This commitment has deservedly been recognised by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine, who named Nicholas as their New Zealand Winemaker of the year for 2022.
