The Landing, Bay of Islands Chardonnay (2019)

Estate-grown at a coastal site in the northern Bay of Islands, the very refined 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-picked and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques. Mouthfilling and tightly structured, it has vibrant, generous, well-ripened peach and grapefruit flavours, mealy and biscuity notes adding complexity, and a lasting finish. Still very youthful, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
