Giesen Fuder Series Clayvin Marlborough Chardonnay 2017 $48-$52

Sourced from one of New Zealand’s OG and most famous certified organic vineyards, this chardonnay is like a bottled version of a headline act at Glastonbury. Dua Lipa, Coldplay or Janelle Monae for example. It’s supremely talented, crammed with energy and vitality, and is quite frankly, intensely smoky as in smokin’ hot. Seven years on from harvest, the oak integration is powering on all cylinders combined with grapefruit, white peach and soft almond layers to finish. It’s a stunning addition to any chardonnay collection,
