2020 Settlement Poplars Vineyard Chardonnay


The 1992 Settlement Poplars Vineyard features 100% Mendoza Chardonnay vines, sitting on free draining alluvium and requiring minimal irrigation. This certified organic vineyard experiences low rainfall, resulting in vibrant and intense fruit with mineral undertones and a creamy finish.

Experience the exquisite 2020 vintage from Marlborough, hailed as one of the region's finest with a warm growing season and minimal rainfall. The hand-picked grapes were whole bunch pressed and left in tank overnight, before being transferred to barrels for wild fermentation and 12 months of ageing on lees.

With 15% new oak, this wine exudes sophistication and complexity. To enhance its freshness and liveliness, it spent an additional 6 months ageing in stainless tanks before bottling, without any fining necessary.

Tasting Note: Mixed citrus fruit is complemented by attractive hints of pip and stone-fruit. A complex underlying richness is kept in check by the wines balance and freshness.

Origin: Marlborough, New Zealand

Alcohol: 14.0%

The exquisite Settlement employs premium, organically certified Marlborough fruit from select parcels.

Their carefully crafted wines, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Noir, are perfectly suited for the region's unique soil and climate, sourced from esteemed sites in the Waurau and Southern Valleys known for their silty clay loams.

Co-founded by Steve Planthaber and Kirsty Sutherland, Settlement is the culmination of Steve's 12 years of experience in production and operations at Cloudy Bay Vineyards, where he honed his diverse skills and expertise.
