A complex Chardonnay with different layers. Juicy stone fruit and a touch of grapefruit on the nose. An attractive oyster shell mouth feel gives a pithy texture, paired with cleansing citrus and stone fruit on he palate, with a long quenching finish. A long finish of quenching bitterness and a hint of toasted vanilla from the old oak barrels makes for seriously food friendly Chardonnay.
Grown on a north facing, single vineyard on the Heretaunga plains. The average age of the clone 15 Chardonnay vines is quarter of a century. Handpicked, whole bunch, cool natural fermentation of around 3 weeks. Residual sugar <1g/L. Alcohol: 13.5%.

Why we chose this
This wine, ‘The Director’s Cut’, is David’s sumptuous sequel to his 2019 film festival favourite ‘A Seat at the Table’. The stunning single vineyard Helio Chardonnay, grown in the warm beachside Heretaunga Plains of the Hawke’s Bay, borne from old vines on an ancient riverbed. This wine is well and truly worth a seat at your table.
