Main Divide North Canterbury Chardonnay (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4*) was fermented and lees-aged in French oak barrels (10 per cent new). Bright, light yellow, it is a mouthfilling, generous wine, with very good depth of vibrant, ripe stonefruit flavours, integrated oak, fresh acidity and considerable complexity. Offering very good value, it should be at its best mid-2022+. (From Pegasus Bay.)
