Tietjen Witters Reserve Chardonnay
The 'Reserve' Chardonnay from TW is old-school Kiwi Chardonnay - fat, fruity, oaky, and creamy. No steely lean Chablis style here.
Pale gold in the glass, aromas of ripe peaches topped with whipped cream, fresh hay, toasted almonds and struck match. Round and creamy on the palate, buttered toast melding tropical and stonefruit together with nice balance & full flavours.
Fully barrel fermented from Mendoza and clone 15 vines 15-30 years old. 30% native yeasts, matured in a combination of French, Hungarian, and American Oak (20% new) for 10 months.
Tietjen Witters (or TW for short) is the combined wisdom of Jordie Witters and Paul Tietjen who together started their vineyard in 1998. They are solely based in Gisborne's "Golden Slope" - a specific subregion with a narrow strip stretching across 10km of elevated sloping land. A Kaiti clay base with influence from the limestone hills nearby topped with thin black topsoil is ideal for premium winemaking.
