Top Aussie White

Derwent Estate Chardonnay, Tasmania 2012 $40

A beautiful chardonnay at a ridiculous price – in the scheme of things. Reserved all-round, it has a light yellow hue and a classy bouquet of almond and stone fruits, the palate showing marvelous texture and symmetry, taut and fine. Lively acidity keeps it zesty and fresh. Intensity and length. Now to 2022. 13.2 per cent alcohol. 96/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: scallops with chorizo and apple

Stockist: Moncur Cellars
