One of New Zealand's most consistently reliable, top-notch Chardonnays, the 2019 Home Block Moutere Chardonnay comes from vines planted in 1978. Barrel fermented and aged in 15% new French oak, it offers up scents of toasted grain and baking spices but backs those with impressively concentrated notes of white peach, pineapple, pear and lime. Those elements all merge seamlessly on the medium-bodied palate, which is plump and generous yet streamlined, with terrific line and length on the silky-textured finish.
