Nautilus Marlborough Chardonnay (2017)

Already delicious, the 2017 vintage (4.5* ) was hand-harvested and fermented and lees-stirred in oak casks (25 per cent new). Very open and expressive in its youth, it is bright, light lemon/green, with mouthfilling body, generous, citrusy, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, fresh acidity, and excellent complexity and harmony. Best drinking 2020+.
