Koparepare Marlborough Chardonnay 2017

Tasted in mid 2019, this wine offers very good value.  Made by Whitehaven, it is sold through fishing clubs in support of LegaSea and its work to restore inshore fisheries to abundance.  Bright, light yellow/green, it is full-bodied, with fresh, generous, peachy flavours, slightly buttery and toasty notes, and a dry, smooth finish.  It's drinking well now.
