Gibbston Valley Winery's China Terrace vineyard is located in the Bendigo subregion of Central Otago. Gently sloped on the lower edge of a large terrace (China Terrace), the 6 hectare vineyard has both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
At over 320 metres above sea level, it retains a coolness relative to Bendigo’s natural warmth. This, and the complex accumulation of loess, clay and schist in its soil, gives the single vineyard Gibbston Valley China Terrace Chardonnay a fresh, bright complexity.
Cellaring: The 2017 China Terrace Chardonnay will be drinking best 2 - 5 years from vintage, and will cellar for up to 10 years.
Food Match: Chardonnay pairs especially well with fresh seafood or chicken dishes.
