Tyrrell's Wines Vat 47 Chardonnay 2015
The Hunter Valley doesn't just do Semillon well. Murray Tyrrell planted these Chardonnay vines in the 1960s, and in many ways, changed the face of Chardonnay from the region single-handedly. Oh, this is superb.
Lemon juice, dainty whipped butter and vanilla cream. Deft raw cashews hover in the background. In a word, the fruit is pristine. Gorgeously medium bodied (12.5%), it's a satiny ride of pleasure without a bump in the road. White stonefruits fold effortlessly into lemony goodness and a citrusy tang that sits at the centre of the pleasure zone. The finish brings nothing but fabulous length and acres of pleasure. Share with those you love.
Drink to a decade+
