2019 Whitehaven Marlborough Chardonnay

"Smoky toasty oak with cream and vanilla scents, roasted yellow stone fruits and some grapefruit then a new wood note. On the palate - dry, almost full-bodied with a satin cream texture, some soft fine wood tannins, lemon peel and grapefruit then peach. Lots of wood with a youthful texture, medium+ acidity and weighty finish. Still quite youthful so another year in your cellar is good. Well made with best drinking from early 2021 through 2024+." 90/100 Points, Cameron Douglas, NZ
