Eva Pemper Marlborough Chardonnay (2020)

The impressive 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard wine, fermented and matured for nine months in old French oak casks. Bright, light yellow/green, it has an inviting, citrusy, slightly smoky, fragrant bouquet. Mouthfilling, it has strong, vibrant, citrusy, peachy flavours, finely integrated oak, and a slightly creamy texture. A very promising debut, with lots of youthful drive, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
