Seifried Winemaker's Collection Nelson Barrique Fermented Chardonnay (2020)

This is typically a bold style. The 2020 vintage (4*) was fermented and matured for a year in French oak barriques (partly new). Pale straw, it is fleshy and creamy-textured, with mouthfilling body and generous, youthful, peachy, toasty flavours, showing good complexity. An upfront style, it should be at its best 2023+.
