Eva Pemper Chardonnay 2020
- New Zealand, 750ml
"Bright, fresh and fruity with aromas of peach and apple with tropical fruit scents then vanilla and lees woven through a moderate French oak layer. On the palate - dry with a satin texture, weighty and youthful with flavours of stone fruits and baking spices, grapefruit, apple, a moments of tropical fruit and fine wood tannins, with medium+ acidity textures. Balanced and well made with immediate drinkability" Cameron Douglas MS

The grapes were hand harvested and gently whole bunch pressed to French oak barrels for fermentation with selected yeast strains with aim to preserve the aromatic and fruit flavours from the vineyard. Wine was barrel aged for 10 months on lees to build mouthfeel and texture. Wine was produced at Marlborough Vintners winery on Rapaura Road, Blenheim, Marlborough.
"Eva Pemper Wines is a premium wine producer in the heart of Marlborough, New Zealand. Winemaker Eva Pemper is a Croatian with a family history of making wine in Croatia. She is here in New Zealand to continue her family legacy and tell her story through her wines.
The “Eva Pemper” brand is a product of many wonderful things that came together and became one. Continuing my family’s legacy and sharing our story on the other side of the world is the core of my wines. I feel very special to be able to do that from New Zealand.
One of the fundamental inspirations of “Eva Pemper” wine is the significant influence of Croatian heritage in New Zealand’s wine industry. This history saw families coming here from Croatia over a hundred years ago with just their suitcases, following their dream. Today this dream has resulted in some of New Zealand’s highest profile wine industry people and brands that are well-known and respected here and around the world.
As the owner of the “Eva Pemper” brand one of my aims is to inspire young people in wine industry in NZ and all over the world to believe in themselves and to work towards achieving their dreams. Little Cupid holding a glass of wine is a legacy from my family’s wine label and represents the love and passion for life that we all can enjoy in a wonderful glass of wine. The “Eva Pemper” brand is all about premium quality wines targeting restaurants, wine shops, wine bars and online wine sales.
I do have my own winemaking style and the best way to describe it is that I try to minimize alterations and adjustments of the grapes and wine and let the growing season shine through and tell us what it was like that year. I feel like each vintage is very special and I want to give it an opportunity to speak for itself. Wine is the only beverage in the world that is so unique and can really reflect a certain place in time. Why would I not respect that and let it happen if I can."
