The fruit for The Batten Chardonnay was harvested from the best parcels of Clone 15 grapes. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed the juice was transferred to 100% French oak barriques and puncheons, 46% new. Lees stirring took place for several months to increase the palate weight and roundness. The Batten is powerful and complex yet balanced, showing golden peach, baked fig, spicy oak and vanilla characters. The palate has excellent concentration with a very long sumptuous and layered mineral finish. Jean Batten 1909 - 1982; A celebrated and true heroine of New Zealand aviation history.
