Carrick Organic Bannockburn Central Otago Chardonnay (2020)

Certified organic, the 2020 vintage (4*) was hand-harvested, and fermented and matured for over a year in French oak barriques (15 per cent new). Light gold, it is mouthfilling, with youthful, peachy flavours, showing good intensity and vigour, finely integrated oak, steely acidity and a crisp, dry, lingering finish. A distinctly cool-climate, slightly austere wine, it's well worth cellaring. Best drinking 2024+.
