Super chardonnay

Matt Connell Wines Lowburn single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017, Central Otago, NZD $38

Aromatic chardonnay with appealing toasted nut, chalky mineral, white peach, citrus and spicy oak flavours. Very elegant and integrated wine. Silken-smooth texture and a lingering finish. A classy wine that should develop well. (Screwcap)
