Passage Rock Reserve Waiheke Island Chardonnay (2020)

Full of potential, the 2020 vintage (5*) was hand-picked and fermented in "large, mostly new French oak barrels." Bright, light lemon/green, it is a powerful, weighty style, with rich, ripe stone-fruit flavours, strongly seasoned with biscuity oak, savoury notes adding complexity and a powerful finish. Best drinking 2023+.
