Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Chardonnay 2020 $27

Lifted and lemony on the nose, this elegantly styled new release from one of our long-time WineFriend loves, is edged with roast cashews and nougat niceness. There’s a lick of smoke, an edge of grilled nectarine and a lush, peachy palate. Great late afternoon sip.
