Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Chardonnay (2020)

The youthful, finely balanced 2020 vintage (4*) was fermented and matured in French oak barrels (10 per cent new). Fresh, full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, it is bright, light lemon/green, with very good depth of citrusy, peachy flavours, mealy notes and a subtle seasoning of oak. Best drinking mid-2022+.
