Description

Auntsfield was founded by David Herd in 1873. Grapes which have shared ancestry with David Herd’s original vineyard are still grown on the land today.  The Auntsfield  Estate is a family business, originally bought by Graeme and Linda Cowley, it is now in the hands of their sons, Ben and Luc Cowley.  Ben is the Viticulturist and Luc the Winemaker.

Auntsfield produces Chardonnay with finesse, restraint, honed focus and a textured mineral structure. The fruit for this wine was hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, allowing clean and intensely flavoured juice to be pressed from the grape. The juice was fermented in French oak barriques, with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeast, followed by extended barrel ageing on yeast lees. Maturation allowed the oak flavours to gently integrate with the fruit and yeast lees characters and develop increased richness and complexity in the wine.

Rich straw gold in colour, the aromas are rich and intense, peach, fig and toasted almond with notes of vanilla.  The palate has concentrated depth, a buttery creamy texture and crisp acidity on the finish.

Wonderful with Pork, Chicken, Rich Fish such as Turbot and  Mature Cheddar Cheese.
