Karikari Estate Chardonnay (2020)

The distinctive 2020 vintage (4*) was estate-grown in Northland, hand-harvested, and fermented and matured for 18 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Bright, light yellow/green, it is a powerful, weighty wine, with generous, peachy, toasty, vaguely honeyed flavours, showing good complexity, and a rounded finish. Already quite open and expressive, it's a drink now or cellaring proposition.
