Deep Down Marlborough Chardonnay (2021)

The lovely 2021 vintage (5*) was grown in the Wrekin Vineyard, in the Southern Valleys, and fermented and matured for nine months in French oak puncheons (15 per cent new). Certified organic, it is a bright, light yellow/green, mouthfilling, rich wine with deep, ripe stonefruit flavours to the fore, finely integrated oak adding complexity, fresh acidity, and lots of youthful vigour. A distinctive, finely crafted wine, it's already delicious, but well worth cellaring too.
