Domaine Rewa Chardonnay - Wineseeker

Domaine Rewa Chardonnay

Medium bodied, citrus, stonefruit and creamy Chardonnay


"Bright, even straw-yellow colour with lemony hues. This has an elegantly concentrated nose with bright and intense aromas of citrus and white stonefruits interwoven with an amalgam of creamy barrel-ferment and nutty oak notes along with subtle lemon-curd MLF elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has fresh and lively flavours of citrus and stonefruits entwined with creamy and nutty oak elements and lemon-curd MLF detail. The palate has good depth and intensity, and is enlivened by brisk acidity. The wine flows with good drive and energy along a fine, phenolic-threaded line, leading to a moderately long, elegant and nuanced finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Chardonnay with good intensity of citrus and stonefruit flavours harmoniously melded with creamy and nutty oak. Match with seafood and creamy-sauced white meat dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, WBP and fully barrel-fermented by indigenous yeasts to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 36% new French oak barriques undergoing batonnage and full MLF. Approx. 260 dozen made. 18.0+/20 Apr 2017" Raymond Chan (4 Stars)

About Domaine Rewa

Domaine Rewa is a tiny 5.5 hectare vineyard located on the fluvial terrace nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range. Although the property was planted in 1997, 2011 was Domaine Rewa’s first vintage. Production is 10k bottles per year. Wanting to make the most of this special plot of land, Philippa Shepherd works with Grant Rolston, Gary Ford and winemaker Pete Bartle to pursue her dream of producing refined wines inspired by the elegance of Burgundy. To ensure the Domaine remains the best possible custodian of the land, biodynamic land practices are deployed - the result is pure and perfumed wines expressive of the Central Otago terroir, renowned as one of the finest in NZ.
