The Hunting Lodge Expressions Chardonnay 2020
- New Zealand, 750ml
A blend from several vineyard sites and fermented in French Oak barriques, the result is an extremely more-ish Chardy, rich in flavour and seamless in structure finishing with fresh acidity and persistence. Pineapple and hazelnut are intertwined with sumptuous stone fruits and citrus peel. Subtle Biscuit and butterscotch flavours offset the zest and minerality – a compelling example of why Chardonnay remains the Lustrous Queen.
