Auntsfield Cob Cottage Chardonnay

Auntsfield’s new single block wines showcase the mineral structure of the particularly old soils of this vineyard in Marlborough’s southern valleys. With vines now reaching the important milestone of thirteen years of age, the wines have ascended to new levels of mineral distinction, here displaying pronounced, slatey minerality. Such finesse, restraint, honed focus and textured mineral structure are seldom found in this region. Pretty grapefruit blossom and white peach aromatics introduce a delightfully taut palate of high-strung acidity and refined lemon and grapefruit allusions.
