Soljans Estate Fifth Generation Series Kumeu Chardonnay (2019)

Already delicious, the 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Kumeu, in West Auckland, and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Bright yellow/green, it is richly fragrant and full-bodied, with concentrated, ripe stonefruit flavours, mealy and savoury notes adding complexity, and a lasting finish. A powerful wine, it's still unfolding; best drinking 2024+.
