Catalina Sounds Marlborough Chardonnay (2020)

The youthful, light lemon/green 2020 vintage (4*) was fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in 'large format oak'. Full-bodied, it is vibrantly fruity, with strong, fresh, peachy, citrusy flavours, and mealy, biscuity notes adding good complexity. Best drinking mid-2022+.
