The Landing, Bay of Islands Boathouse Chardonnay (2019)

Delicious now, but also well worth cellaring, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown, hand-picked and fermented and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (10 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is a very harmonious, fragrant, full-bodied wine, with generous, ripe stone-fruit flavours, slightly toasty and buttery notes, and very good vigour and complexity.
