Mt Difficulty McFerin Ridge Lowburn Valley Chardonnay 2018 $37 (approx)

From a real rollercoaster of a vintage comes a wine with remarkable poise and composure. From the whiff of white nectarine, grilled grapefruit and baked pineapple, to the taut, stonefruit saturated palate surrounded by cashew and cream notes, it’s a Central Otago chardonnay that’s very comfortable in its own skin. Vibrantly fresh and showing tightrope tension between acidity and alcohol, it’s a sexy, complex, punch in the chops style that also washes across the gums in a cloud of citrus.

I absolutely love it.
