Scout Lowburn Central Otago Chardonnay 2019 $34
Gorgeous chardonnay here from a site situated on the stony slopes above Lake Dunstan. Harvested and pressed directly to barrels where it went through a natural/wild/indigenous primary ferment and a healthy 100% malolactic secondary ferment. The result is a a grilled peach and grapefruit-stacked chardonnay oozing personality, plucky freshness, layers of caramelised, toasty oak vibes and a perfectly poised, saucy palate that get’s its grip into you and won’t let go. Juicy, complex and soothing to sip, it’s darn lovely.
