Moonlight Mile Apocalypse Chardonnay 2020


That tense time that was the first NZ lockdown in March 2020 also happened to be the start of harvest. So this wine is appropriately named 'Apocalypse' based on how the world felt at the time fruit was being picked solo in a Nelson vineyard. This is the kind of paired back, lean style of Chardonnay we’re loving. It’s pure in fruit with lengthy, pithy freshness. 

The Rolling Stones wrote the song Moonlight Mile in 1969, giving a measure to how far away loved ones can feel in times of loneliness. Kit Clinton-Baker and Monty Petrie are winemaking mates who have sourced fruit from both Nelson and Marlborough to make whites under their low intervention Moonlight Mile label. Frankly, we don’t think there should be a moonlight mile between you and these wines.
