Collaboration Aurulent Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2020)

This consistently classy wine is harvested from 'select vineyards' and handled in French oak casks. Fragrant and full-bodied, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a bright, light lemon/green, vibrantly fruity wine, with grapefruit and peach flavours, showing very good vigour and concentration, subtle mealy and biscuity notes adding complexity, and fresh acidity. A stylish young wine, it's still very youthful and well worth cellaring to 2023+.
