Kelly Washington Rapaura Marlborough Chardonnay (2020)

Certified organic, the stylish 2020 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked from mature vines in the Rapaura district of the Wairau Valley, and fermented and aged in French oak barrels (partly new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is an elegant, youthful, savoury wine, fresh and full-bodied, with peach and grapefruit flavours, finely integrated oak, balanced acidity and a lingering finish. Best drinking mid-2023+.
