Balgownie Estate Black Label Chardonnay 2016

A good Yarra Valley Chardonnay to cure your midweek woes.

Hand-picked, whole bunched pressed to French oak for wild fermentation (50%). Ten months on lees before bottling.

Rockmelon,  green mango,  homemade lemonade. Some yellow stone fruits push to the width of the mouth with acid drawing saliva. Toasted nuts and soft creaminess sit pretty. Tick.

Drink now to five years.
