Boneline, The, Sharkstone Waipara Chardonnay


An emerging classic from North Canterbury. Full of potential, the distinctive 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown, hand-picked from 30 year-old vines and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels (27 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is highly fragrant, with intense, youthful, citrusy, peachy, biscuity flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, vibrant acidity and a lasting finish. ‘Puligny-like’, I jotted down. Still a baby, it’s well worth cellaring to 2024+.
