As a dedicated Chardonnay lover I welcomed the news that demand for good Aussie Chardonnay was on the rise again. Let's hope it's the start of something massive.
The label of this wine reflects word-of-mouth with a bunch of hipster types sharing the news of the next big thing, a real vineyard find, proper stuff with bags of varietal appeal but lovely texture too. Aussie Chardonnay is making a comeback and this is a cracking wine to start the revolution!
With the faintest whiff of biscuity oak this bright, tangy Barossa Valley Chardonnay is an absolute delight. It has that classical Barossa charm, elegance, poise, tang and naggingly more-ish elusive something-or-other which makes one wonder why there isn't more good Australian Chardonnay.
Pair this with chicken, pork, prawns or seafood. Brilliant as a quaffer or perfect with a lovingly cooked meal.
