Wither Hills Single Vineyard Benmorven Marlborough Chardonnay (2019)

Hand-harvested and barrel-fermented, the delicious 2018 vintage (4.5*) offers fine value. A youthful, sweet-fruited wine, it has good intensity of ripe, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, fresh acidity, oak-derived complexity, and a slightly creamy finish. Best drinking 2021+. The 2019 vintage (4.5*) is fragrant and mouthfilling, with fresh, concentrated, stonefruit flavours, seasoned with toasty oak, and excellent delicacy and depth. Already drinking well, it's a very harmonious wine, well worth cellaring to 2022+.
