Slick, creamy, fresh.
The family heirloom known as Covert Farms, is a 650-acre multi-functional regeneratively-farmed estate that was established in 1959 at McIntyre Bluff. They have been organic since 2005 and biodynamic since 2008.
2020 marked the first ever Chardonnay ever produced by Covert Farms; the vines, planted in 2007 are rooted in estate glaciofluvial sedimentary soils. This Grand Reserve 2021 was barrel fermented then aged 9 months in French oak.
It has a nutty, buttery nose with crunchy yellow apples, honeysuckle, acacia and lemon aromas. Creamy in the mouth it's a juxtaposition of generous and juicy. Slick and beautifully balanced with a nutty, zesty finish. Excellent.
