Brookland Valley Chardonnay 2011

A very impressive one year old Chardonnay that was just tipped for Top Gold at the Royal Queensland Wine Show.

Pale golden colour, there is plenty of white flesh peach on the nose, a little nuttiness, along with lovely fruit and oak. The oak is obvious but not dominant.

On the palate, the fruit is uplifting. Melons, the peach reappears. Elegant warmth on exit.
Super balance. My style of Chard - and only one year old. Wow!
