Alex Craighead, DON NELSON CHARDONNAY, 6 Bottle Case 75cl
Another hit from our favourite kiwi, Alex Craighead. This wine is a selection of some of Alex’s finest Chardonnay from several organically farmed vineyards from around Nelson, some planted on rich Moutere Clay, others planted on lighter soils. A small amount also comes from Alex’s own vineyard, which he farms primarily with biodynamic practices. The grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed into a combination of old barrel and amphora for both fermentation and élevage. The end result is one of the most delicious Chardonnays to pass our lips in a very long time, absolutely awesome!
