Smart gear this. Hunter Valley Chardonnay is a gem when done well. This one is from Hart & Hunter - get around it.
There is a lot to like about the flow of this wine. Think Creme Brulee, butterscotch, almond meal and fleshy white stonefruit aplenty to get things on the move. The oak and fruit work in unison although the oak reaches out early to make itself known. A generous wine with layers of interest to peruse, there is a lemon meringue drive that pushes through to a long and moreish finish. That lemony tang just sticks - bravo! A subtle Mediterranean tonic feel adds to the pleasure factor. Yep, smart wine and one I'd happily recommend.
