Wither Hills Single Vineyard Ben Morven Marlborough Chardonnay 2019 $28

Planted 20 years ago, this small-scale, north-facing site has been producing certified organic fruit since conversion in 2009 and certified sensational chardonnay since ages ago. Crafted by winemaker Matt Large, it’s a rich yet elegantly structured, stonefruit-and-smoke-soaked chardonnay which oozes caramelised, toasty spices and a buttered crumpet character on the finish. Smooth, stylish and saturated with flavour. I love it!!
