De Bortoli Sacred Hill Chardonnay 2013

It is easy to scoff at a sub ten dollar wine and assume it is below par. Granted there are too many that fall into that category yet there are still plenty of shining lights. Take this Sacred Hill Chardy...

For $7 it is pretty damn good drinking and quite often the Sacred Hill range is discounted beyond this RRP which makes it even better value.

Tropical and stone fruit characters run riot with generous lashings of fleshy peach. There is some oak present but there is enough fruit there to override that. To my surprise there was some very good textural interest which leads to an impressive length.

A wine hard to ignore considering what you get for your dollar. This is most certainly a bargain worth getting your hands on.
