Farr Rising Chardonnay, Geelong 2013 $39 Fantastic value
This is a baby and will only improve with time in the bottle. Bright, light-medium yellow hue; the bouquet fresh and restrained, tight and citrusy, with a touch of candle-wax. It’s also tight and refined in the mouth, yet very intense, with vibrant, balanced acidity and fine structure. Now to five years. 13 per cent alcohol. 95/100 – Huon’s Wine 360
Food: roast free-range chicken
Stockists: Mosman Cellars, Sydney. City Wine Shop, Melbourne.
