Martinborough Vineyard Home Block Chardonnay (2020)

The very youthful 2020 vintage (5*) was fermented and matured for a year in French oak barriques (24 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with strong, ripe stonefruit flavours, seasoned with biscuity, nutty oak, and a slightly creamy texture. Best drinking 2024+.
