Main Divide North Canterbury Chardonnay (2021)

The impressive, top value 2021 vintage (4.5*) was fermented and lees-aged in French oak barriques. Bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, slightly smoky bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with strong, vigorous, peachy, citrusy flavours, showing good complexity, and a lengthy finish. Best drinking 2024+. (From Pegasus Bay.)
