With a backdrop of majestic mountains and vineyards that stretch towards the Pacific Ocean, North Canterbury is home to some of New Zealand's most exciting wineries. Among them, Black Estate stands as a shining example of the region's winemaking prowess.

The Black Estate 'Home' Chardonnay 2021 is an exemplary representation of Chardonnay from a winery known for its commitment to expressing the true character of its terroir. This wine likely combines the classic qualities of Chardonnay - ripe fruit, balanced acidity, and a touch of oak - with the unique attributes conferred by its specific vineyard location. Expect a wine that offers both the richness associated with Chardonnay and the elegance that comes from a nuanced, terroir-driven approach.

Appearance: In the glass, the wine reveals a pale, glistening gold hue, reminiscent of the sun-drenched landscapes that grace North Canterbury's vineyards.

Aroma: On the nose, a bouquet of fresh citrus and white peach greets the senses, with hints of green apple and a subtle mineral undertone. These delicate fruit aromas are complemented by a touch of toasted almond and oak, showcasing the wine's complexity.

Taste: The palate is a harmonious blend of flavors. Ripe orchard fruits, such as apple and pear, take center stage, delivering a luscious and refreshing fruitiness. The oak influence is judiciously integrated, contributing to a creamy texture that enhances the wine's mouthfeel without overpowering the fruit. A vibrant acidity runs through the wine, lending it balance and structure, while a gentle mineral note reflects the region's terroir.

Finish: The finish is long and satisfying, leaving behind a trail of citrus zest and a touch of hazelnut. The Black Estate 'Home' Chardonnay 2021 is a true representation of the region's commitment to producing wines of elegance and finesse.

Food Pairing: 

  1. Cape Grim Steak Tartare with Spiced Egg Emulsion, Mung Sprouts, Baby Caper, and Yolk: The creamy and complex profile of the Chardonnay will perfectly complement the rich flavors of the steak tartare, while its acidity will cut through and balance the dish's richness.

  2. Truffle Gnocchi with Wild Fungi, Provolone, Parsley, Cavolo Nero, and Garlic Butter Sugo: The buttery and nuanced flavors of the Chardonnay will beautifully pair with the earthy truffle and wild fungi, while its elegant structure will enhance the creamy textures and herbal notes of the dish.
