Clive Paton was one of the first to plant grapes on the Martinborough Terrace in 1980 and the winery has since gone on to become a legend of the New Zealand wine industry. 2017 was a cool vintage, perfect for Chardonnay. The aromatics are very clean and precise: fresh ripe white pear, florals of jasmine blended with savoury aromas of almond and cashew nuts, opening out in the glass like apple in puff pastry. The palate is incredibly elegant with bright fine acidity that pulls you right to the end of the palate. We love the unforced feel of this wine, no overt oak or fermentation characters; a great representation of the Martinborough Terrace terrior.
