Locharburn Riesling NV 3cm
 
Locharburn Central Otago Riesling 2013
Pure, pristine and delightful, the bouquet shows floral, lemon zest, stone fruit and a hint of flinty notes. Off-dry to taste, bold and up-front flavours of lemon and lime burst on the palate, showing depth and concentration, leading to a fabulous, mouth-watering nutty and mineral finish.

Locharburn Chardonnay NV 3cm
 
Locharburn Central Otago Chardonnay 2012 - Sold Out.​
The Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested on the 20th April and were whole bunch pressed on a long gentle cycle and settled overnight.   The juice was fermented in two French oak puncheons (one new, one neutral) which adds to the texture and length of the wine.  The wine spent over 12 months in oak and underwent a partial malolactic fermentation.

Brix at Harvest: 24° Brix     Residual Sugar:  2 g/l         Titratable Acidity:6 g/l         Alcohol:14%
