Brookfields Bergman Chardonnay (2020)

Named after the Ingrid Bergman Rosés in the estate garden, this wine is grown alongside the winery at Meeanee, in Hawke's Bay. The 2020 vintage (4*) was "virtually all" fermented and matured for eight months in French and American oak barriques. Light lemon/green, it is weighty, with generous, ripe stonefruit flavours, slightly toasty and buttery notes, and a well-rounded finish. Enjoyable young, it offers good value.
