2020 Deep Down Chardonnay, Marlborough
A wine of purity and intrigue. Aromas and flavours of citrus peel and baked yellow fruits, the natural ferment approach allows the wine to hold onto its sense of place, adds texture, depth and complexity while the newish oak adds impact spice, toasty moments and length. A weighty, youthful, floral and delicious wine with a fresh acid line, finer wood tannins and youthful fruit core. Decant for service from today and through end of 2021. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2024.
