Staete Landt Josephine Marlborough Chardonnay (NV)

Past vintages were from a single vineyard at Rapaura, in the Wairau Valley, but the 2019 (4.5*) is from 'highly selected vineyard parcels in Marlborough.' Hand-picked and fermented in French oak barriques, it is a refined wine, bright, light lemon/green, with a fresh, slightly mealy bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is vibrant and youthful, with deep, ripe stone-fruit flavours, biscuity notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and a finely textured, very harmonious finish. Good value.
