Bendigo Hills Central Otago Chardonnay 2022 $32

Certified organic, clone 548 and B95 chardonnay here from the famous Trig Block in the sunbaked Bendigo subregion. Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed straight to French oak (50% new) to slip into a funky little wild ferment and then it’s aged on its lees for 10 months before being lightly filtered, bottled and shipped into the shops for your sipping pleasure. And pleasurable it is. Loaded with classic citrus and white peach punchiness, there’s a roasty, toasty almond note, refreshing acidity, a seam of dried herb complexity and an elegantly structured finish
