Mission The Gaia Project Hawke's Bay Chardonnay (2020)

The debut 2020 vintage (4.5*) offers excellent value. Fermented and matured in French oak casks, it is a bright, light yellow, full-bodied, savoury wine, with generous, ripe, stonefruit flavours, finely integrated oak, very good complexity and a well-rounded finish. Drinking well in its youth, it should break into full stride 2023+.
