Jules Taylor Marlborough Chardonnay (2020)

Already very enjoyable, the 2020 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Southern Valleys and partly hand-picked and barrel-fermented. Fresh, weighty, harmonious and well-rounded, it has vibrant, ripe, peachy, citrusy flavours, subtle mealy and biscuity notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and great drinkability.
