Awatere River focus on quality over quantity and their 2019 chardonnay is another example of delicious wine that punches well above its price point. This release was fermented in French oak and has developed gorgeous toasty oak characters. Another excellent release from this multi-award winning winery.
The winery writes "This wine has a silky texture that glides across the palate. It shows cashew, rock melon, satsuma and toasty oak flavours. It has balanced acidity and lingering finish. There is concentration and complexity in this wine that will reward cellaring."
