2020 TWR SV Chardonnay


or 4 fortnightly payments of $15.00 with Afterpay More info

This Single Vineyard Chardonnay (SV5182) is made solely from the old Mendoza clone vines, which are part of the original TWR plantings from 1979.

We’ve bottled this Chardonnay under our SV label because we first tried this wine in barrel and the quality was something else – it deserved to be it’s own wine.
This did mean we’ve made an absolutely tiny amount but we’re super thrilled with the result.

Cameron Douglas MS – 97 Points    
Pure, youthful, complex and alluring scents of fresh orchard fruits and raw cashew nut oak. White peach and grapefruit, red apple and fine wood spices suggesting some vanilla then a touch of white smoke. Medium+ weight on the palate, a core of ripe white fleshed fruits and citrus reflect the bouquet, very complex, texture and fine. A fantastic wine drinkable today or as a wine for the cellar till 2024 then through 2030+.

Bob Campbell MW – 95 points
5182 is the identification number of one of the oldest vineyards in Marlborough. A rich, weighty chardonnay with grapefruit, nectarine, struck-flint, hazelnut and bready yeast lees flavours supported by tangy, refreshing acidity. Drink 2021–2028

Nick Stock – 94 Points 
This fuses attractive fruit purity and notes of ripe peach and nectarine with complex savouriness, such as pastry, cream and honeysuckle. The palate has fresh, fleshy yellow orchard-fruit flavours framed in bright acidity. Good focus and plenty of flavour.
