Astrolabe The Farm Marlborough Chardonnay (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Astrolabe Farm, at Grovetown, in the lower Wairau Valley, hand-harvested and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak puncheons and barriques. Full, bright lemon/green, with smoky, gunflint aromas, it is full-bodied, with rich, well-ripened stonefruit flavours, generous and complex, gentle acidity and a dry, well-rounded finish. Drink now or cellar.
