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

The characterful 2018 vintage (4.5*) is based solely on Chardonnay clone 548. Estate-grown at Wanaka, it was fermented and matured for a year in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it has a fresh, strong, distinctly lemony bouquet. Full-bodied, it has very good drive and depth of citrusy flavours, with a subtle seasoning of oak adding complexity. Highly enjoyable now, it's also well worth cellaring.
