Top Aussie White

Alkoomi Black Label Chardonnay, Frankland River 2011 $21.50

A savoury style, with toasty barrel-derived and creamy lees characters leading the way, and a bright, light/medium yellow hue. It’s tight and tidy in the mouthy, with good focus and intensity and a lip-smacking bone-dry finish that lingers. I could enjoy several glasses of this. Now to 2017. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: pan-fried calamari

Stockist: Kemeny’s
