Flaxmore Moutere Nelson Chardonnay (2020)

Well worth cellaring, the elegant 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-harvested in the Moutere hills, and fermented and matured for nine months in oak barrels (15 per cent new). Pale straw, it is youthful, with strong, peachy, citrusy flavours, gently seasoned with biscuity oak, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh, balanced acidity and a dry, lengthy finish. Best drinking 2024+.
