Thomas Legacy Waiheke Island Chardonnay (2019)

Delicious now, but also ageworthy, the classy 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested, and fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with concentrated, peachy, citrusy flavours, seasoned with biscuity oak, and a well-rounded, very harmonious finish. (From Batch Winery).
