Indulge Yourself

Hardy’s Eileen Hardy Chardonnay, Tasmania & Yarra Valley 2012 $95

Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s cheaper than a premier cru Burgundy from a reputable maker. Full bright yellow; rich peachy open-knit bouquet with smoky and spicy complexing characters, then a powerful, concentrated palate with richness that borders on opulent. An outstanding chardonnay from accomplished winemaker Tom Newton. Now to 2022. 13 per cent alcohol. 96/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: lobster thermidor

Stockist: Kemeny’s
