Tasting Notes:

Our first vintage – the Cedalion 2013 Single Vineyard Chardonnay – sold out within months of launch, after turning heads in the London and Japanese wine scenes.

In 2014 the site conveyed more citrus characters and has a greater new oak component than its leaner 2013 counterpart, made possible by the richness of this superb vintage. Earthy aromas and a savoury complexity mingle with a salty acid profile echoing the distinctive zesty, mineral finish of the 2013.

Fruit was harvested from the spectacular Arae vineyard, a southwest facing 0.9 hectare plot on Te Ara Estate in Church Bay. The 14 year-old vineyard’s soils are a mix of clay and limestone – ideal for producing a cool climate, long-living chardonnay.

Don’t miss out on this sublime vintage – possibly one of the best the island has seen.
