WineFolio "A very pale silvery lemon-green in the glass, with crisp, slightly smoky aromas of pear, nectarine, lemon peel, hazelnut, greengage, weetbix and a crushed-shell minerality. Dry, crisp and tension-filled into the palate, with a burst of pithy acidity. A concentration to the core of the wine – lush fruit with a nutty oak frame to it – the palate rapidly opening up and becoming textural and generous. Delicacy and depth in equal parts, the finish has real finesse and great length."

Cameron Douglas MS "There’s no mistaking the mineral and pure fruit lift in the bouquet with a fine chalk-like scent of soil with ripe pear and white peach then light sweet scents of French Oak. Silky smooth on the palate with a light gun-flint and lees quality, flavours of white fleshed orchard fruits, a light saline quality sits perfectly alongside the acid-line. Lengthy, complex and delicious." (2021 vintage)

Bob Campbell, The Real Review "Rich, concentrated chardonnay with grapefruit/citrus, white peach, root ginger, oyster shell/struck flint characters supported by fruity acidity that gives the wine a little natural tension and a crisp, dry finish. (2021 vintage)

James Suckling "Charming aromas of ground ginger, lemon peel, fresh cream and flint. Medium-bodied with silky texture. Green apples and hazelnuts on the palate with a bit of fresh hay and straw. Juicy finish. From organically grown grapes." (2021 vintage)

Raymond Chan Wine Reviews "Bright, even, pale yellow with depth. The nose is full, packed with aromas of ripe apricot, nectarine interweave citrus, raw almond, clarified butter and toasty hints. Medium-full bodied, aromas of ripe apricot and nectarine are mouth-filling, entwined with citrus peel, almond and toasted brioche. The fruit is concentrated and forward, with ripeness and generosity. A creamy mouthfeel carries nutty and toasty elements with ease along a chalky mineral palate. Integrated lively acidity flows with good energy to a long, nutty finish. This is a generous Chardonnay packed with stonefruit, toast and an opulent, creamy mouthfeel. " (2021 vinatge)

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Light, bright yellow colour. Creamy lees, cashew nut, lemon and lime aromas. The palate adds in more lemon and other citrus touches, the profile fine and intense, piercing and linear, with terrific purity, penetration and finesse, and a core of fruit sweetness. A very smart chardonnay." (2020 vintage)

New Zealand Wine Rater "An intense, bright, fruit forward style with underli ng minerality. Appealing aromas of oven roasted peaches, guava, and lime are balanced by piquant gun flint, and lavender characters with vanilla oak. A rich, tasty, concentrated wine with a creamy mid palate, and prominent, salivating acidity that balances the weight of the wine. An intense style but has energy, and zing." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Attractively rich and complex aromas of peach and grilled pear with nougat, spice and toasted hazelnut, too. The palate has a smooth and fleshy feel with rich peach flavors and a fresh pastry-like finish. Lime and fresh cream to close. (2020 vintage)

Winemaker "The palate is generous and textural up front, opening with suggestions of ripe nectarine and vanilla poached apple. Toasty oak mingles with nuances of freshly baked pastries in the mid palate adding background complexity while a fine bead of acidity draws the palate out to a long textural finish.

Organic wines are made from grapes grown without pesticides, following strict organic standards. Organic wines are produced in vineyards that do not use synthetic chemicals. Certified organic wines have been certified by Biogro Organic certification in New Zealand. 

Highly awarded and acclaimed, wine-maker Alan Peters-Oswald is a specialist premium pinot noir maker. The Central Otago wine region is the world's southern-most commercial wine-growing region, and famous for its Pinot Noir. It differs from all other New Zealand wine areas in that it is inland, in the foothills of the Southern Alps. The level of sunlight is very high, something that accounts for the high levels of alcohol that are often found in Central Otago wines.

Nestled within a timeless and sensual landscape, Nanny Goat Estate Vineyard sits between 270m and 290m above sea level spread across two ancient, North East facing terraces. This is a region of climatic extremes with typically very hot summers, short autumns and bitterly cold winter days. Challenging conditions for producing world-class cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Successive periods of glaciation and recession, followed by erosion by Mata Au / Clutha River have shaped the Nanny Goat Estate landscape by creating distinct terraces of alluvial soils that are pastiche of loess, gravel, schist and mineral quartz. Generations of farming and the associated cultivation of lucerne and other feed crops have added organic matter to the wind blowen loessial topsoil providing us with a nice balance between vine vigor and free draining attributes.

The Queensberry range is 100% sourced from our home vineyard in Queensberry. BioGro Certified organic, this single vineyard range sees the benefits of the adoption of organic and regenerative viticultural practices, both environmentally and qualitatively. The effect of healthy soils and resilient vines is evident in the quality of fruit and characteristics of this wine.

Hand picked and whole bunch pressed to stainless steel tank for a brief period of settling before being gently mixed and transferred to 500L French oak Puncheon (20% new) with high solids and left to ferment naturally with occasional lees stirring to enhance palate weight and texture. The wine underwent full Malolactic fermentation in barrel during its 10 months of maturation, softening the palate yet retaining a fine vein of acidity and giving a wonderful balance to the palate.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery. The Domaine Pouilly Fuisse Clos Reyssie has been described to be buttery and complex, and is the perfect companion for a meal of chicken or turkey.
