Our 2016 Plainsman SV Chardonnay is based on a single parcel of fruit from a block in Koropiko. For the fourth year in a row the weather gods smiled upon Hawkes Bay and we were able to harvest our fruit in magnificent condition. Post harvesting, pressing and settling, the juice was run off to seasoned American and French oak for fermentation and aging. Most barrels also went through a secondary malolactic fermentation.
