Spy Valley Marlborough Chardonnay (2018)

A consistently attractive, top-value wine. The 2015 vintage (4*) was hand-picked, barrel-fermented and oak-matured for nearly a year. Retasted in mid 2018, it is light lemon/green, still fresh and youthful, with mouthfilling body, strong peach and grapefruit flavours, slightly mealy notes adding complexity, and a fully dry, lingering finish. Drink now-2020.
