Butterworth Martinborough Chardonnay 2020 ($48)

Crammed with roast cashew, grilled peach and creamy nougat notes on the nose and palate, this refreshing new release from fruit grown on the Te Muna Terraces is dangerously drinkable and will absolutely appeal to chardonnay lovers of all ages and stages. It’s a full, rich,toasty triumph with buckets of personality and a long, generous finish. The J-knot on the bottle? That’s a nod to both the vineyard’s founder, Wim Julicher and the sailing pedigree of new owners, the Butterworth family.
