Mt Difficulty Ghost Town Lowburn ValleyCentral Otago Chardonnay (2019)

Grown at Lowburn, in the Cromwell Basin, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 11 months in French oak casks (14 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and full-bodied, with generous, vibrant stonefruit flavours, finely integrated oak, and mealy, biscuity notes adding good complexity. Best drinking mid-2022+.
