Mahi Single Vineyard Twin Valleys Marlborough Chardonnay (2017)

Hand-picked in the Twin Valleys Vineyard, at the junction of the Wairau and Waihopai valleys, the refined 2017 vintage (5*) was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barriques. Maturing very gracefully, it is a bright, light yellow/green, full-bodied, complex wine, with vigorous, citrusy, peachy flavours, enriched with biscuity oak, and a lasting finish. Best drinking 2022+.
