Black Estate Home North Canterbury Chardonnay (2020)

Certified organic, the elegant 2020 vintage (5*) is from the Home Vineyard at Omihi, Waipara. Hand-picked from vines planted in 2011 and 1994, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright, light yellow/green, it is fragrant, mouthfilling and vigorous, with rich, peachy, citrusy flavours, finely balanced oak and a hint of butterscotch. A classy, savoury wine, with a strong sense of youthful drive, it's well worth cellaring to 2024+.
