White from Black

Black Estate Home Chardonnay 2020, North Canterbury, NZD $55

Unfined and unfiltered—best to settle for a day or two and decant although my bottle was sediment-free. A rich and quite weighty wine with peach, roasted nut, toast, honey and subtle spicy oak with a backbone of mouth-watering acidity. A classy chardonnay. (Screwcap)
