Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia. 12.8%
The epitome of modern Australian chardonnay… so well crafted. Nothing forced, nothing over-the-top. Complexity at such a young age, as chardonnay can do. Not enough intensity or acid to perhaps last too long, but then this is not a super premium wine.
Very flash. I know that great wine is made in the vineyard, but it can be stuffed up in the winery… here the winemaking is to be praised.
