Paddy Borthwick Wairarapa Chardonnay (2020)

Still unfolding, the highly attractive 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown at Gladstone, in the northern Wairarapa. Bright, light yellow/green, with a fragrant, slightly toasty bouquet, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with generous, vibrant, peachy flavours, showing good complexity, and a finely poised finish. Well worth cellaring, it offers excellent value.
