Astrolabe Marlborough Chardonnay (2019)

The 2019 vintage (4.5*) was hand-harvested at three sites in the Awatere Valley, lower Wairau Valley and the Southern Valleys, and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques and puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, it is a subtle, mouthfilling wine, with ripe stone-fruit flavours, slightly biscuity and creamy notes adding complexity, and a finely textured, smooth, very harmonious finish. Drink now or cellar.
