Ant Moore Chardonnay Signature Series (12 Bottles) Marlborough, NZ

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



Aromas of dried Apricots, tobacco and citrus, the concentration on the nose is delightful. The subtle use of French oak has enabled to wine to feel warming and yet fruit dominated at the same time.

The palate is rich and rounded with a long line and balance acidity. An unctuous palate that with each sip the wine lingers.

The 2016 Vintage was typical of Marlborough with long dry spells of warm days for ripening and cooler nights toward Autumn, perfect for developing the classic Marlborough Wines.

Low yields; hand harvested; whole bunch pressed. Fermented in old oak predominantly and aged on lees allowing natural malolactic fermentation with very little winemaker intervention.

About Ant Moore

The growing region of Marlborough has many lovely flavour idiosyncrasies throughout. Ant Moore gathers fruit from the widest range of vineyards possible, all up and down the valleys, and indeed on the ridge-tops. Stylistically this is very exciting, but it also allows for a tremendous consistency year to year.

We have a wholistic growing philosophy; grazing sheep in the vineyards is just one aspect which provides for low pesticide and herbicide regimes. We have a minimal sulphur approach, using age old pruning and canopy management techniques, together with modern practices to achieve.
