2011 Pont Tremblant Chardonnay


Our Pont Tremblant label is reserved for wines of exceptional quality and diversity.
These wines are made only in vintages where we feel the quality surpasses even our
own very high expectations. These are phenomenal wines of depth, character and
elegance. Produced in very small volumes, these wines are often only available at our
Cellar Door or on enquiry. These are wines for the true wine aficionado.



Winemakers Tasting Notes


An exclusive and very limited parcel of grapes is used in this exquisite wine. Notes of
apricot nectar, honey, nut, and vanilla cream delight the nose and are joined by spices
and toasty oak characters in a refined mouthful of wine. Freshly new world yet
showing classic characteristics of an old world wine, our 2011 Pont Tremblant
Chardonnay is a rare find. Just 636 bottles produced.



Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central
Otago, New Zealand. Our source vineyards are situated below the 45th Parallel
in the southern most wine growing region on the globe. Our location is ideally suited to
the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wine, alongside Pinot Noir which is our primary variety.



Sourcing fruit from 6 distinct blocks that vary in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge
Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various
locations, soil types and clones used within each block provide our winemaker, Dave
Grant, with a virtual painters pallet of flavours to create multi dimensional wines of
exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

Winemaking Notes

De-stemmed and crushed very ripe Chardonnay grapes directly into the tank press, followed by brief skin contact before lightly pressing the juice into stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation. A new and a first year French oak barrel were used for malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged sur lie for 16 months. The wine was finished in October 2012 and bottled shortly after.

Fine, taut Chardonnay with appealing mineral and grapefruit/citrus flavours against a toasty, nutty, bran biscuit background. Quite concentrated with a firm backbone of fine acidity. Fairly austere wine right now but with potential to open up with bottle age.
