How unpredictable is the weather of late, and I’m talking Australia wide. From one day to the next we have had incredibly high temperatures, to strong winds, then snow falls in some southern states, to storms and hail in others. As much as the Bureau of Meteorology do their best to give us some idea what to expect today, tomorrow and next week, they themselves must sometimes wonder if they should ditch the science behind it all and use a dartboard (as some people think they do anyway).
The same can’t be said for this Chardonnay. I don’t mean you can predict exactly what the wine is going to taste like, not at all. What I mean is, you know it is going to provide a reliable, easy drinking white wine today, tomorrow, next week and probably next year.
A very charming, varietal nose leads into a pretty good tasting wine. There’s stone fruits and pears at the forefront of the flavours with a delicate spicy sort of character adding even more interest. Things keep moving along with a deft touch of acid and some texture into a reasonably good length. Plenty of value right here, no doubt about that!
