Mount Riley Chardonnay 2015 (Marlborough)
There’s a lot to get excited about here, not least the price. This is a snappy, engaging wine with layers of attractive ripe fruit notes (pineapple, gingerflower) framed by a fine-boned structure. The finish is long and dry. It’s not a complex wine, but is authentic and unpretentious. Try it with calamari.
