Lime Rock Hill of Good Health Central Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2020)

Full of potential, the classy, very youthful 2020 vintage (5*) is rare – only two barriques were produced. Hand-picked at Pukeora and barrel-fermented, it is a bright, light lemon/green, powerful, weighty wine, full-bodied and slightly creamy, with concentrated, citrusy, peachy flavours, finely balanced oak, fresh acidity and a slightly biscuity fragrance. Best drinking 2023+.
