Aitken's Folly Riverbank Road The Gordon Wanaka Central Otago Chardonnay (2018)

Already delicious, the youthful 2018 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at Wanaka and matured for 18 months in one year-old French oak barrels. Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling, with concentrated, ripe, citrusy, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, showing excellent delicacy and depth, a slightly creamy texture and a very harmonious, long finish.
