Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Chardonnay (2019)

The powerful 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown, hand-harvested and matured for a year in American (60 per cent) and French oak barrels (80 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, it is mouthfilling and weighty, in a strongly oak-influenced style with concentrated, peachy, nutty, toasty flavours, balanced acidity and a slightly creamy texture. Still very youthful, it should be at its best 2022+.
