Bob Campbell MW gives the 2017 Alchemy Chardonnay 94 points

Mahi Alchemy Chardonnay 2017, Marlborough, NZD $39.90 Rich, intense and slightly funky chardonnay with ginger, apple, white peach, bran biscuit and struck flint flavours. A complex, layered wine that gains extra texture from a backbone of fine tannins. Good now but will develop with bottle age.
