The Landing Bay of Islands Chardonnay 2017


Part of investment executive Peter Cooper’s luxury development on Purerua Peninsula in the Bay of Islands, The Landing Vineyard is 9 ha planted to Chardonnay, Syrah, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Malbec. The vineyard is tended by Andrew Hull, and already the wines have received critical acclaim. This is no doubt due to the carefully chosen site, the viticultural work and the winemaking of Rod McIvor at Marsden Estate. Arguably, Chardonnay has been the most successful variety, wines winning gold medals (click here to see my reviews of the 2015 and 2016 Chardonnay). Here, I review the 2017 Chardonnay, coming from a challenging season. The Landing 2017 wines I have seen have not disappointed.
