"All Mendoza clone from vines 20-40 years old and barrel-fermented using indigenous yeasts, the 2017 Chardonnay Moutere continues this wine's successful run. Toasted grain and roasted cashew notes mark the nose, but they're backed by ample pineapple and melon fruit. Medium to full-bodied, this offers great intensity of flavor, richness and length. Just lovely stuff, and still one of the Kiwi classics. Drink: 2019-2026. 94 points

Founders Tim and Judy Finn are gradually stepping back to let daughter Rosie take on more of the day-to-day responsibilities of running the property, which remains a beacon of quality within the Nelson region (and in all of New Zealand). Winemaker Todd Stevens said that 2017 "had a bumpy finish," referring to vintage rains, and said 2018 was "another doozy," but despite a couple of challenging vintages, I couldn't find a misstep in the current lineup."
