Bay of Fires Chardonnay, Tasmania 2013 $43
Struck-flint, reductive notes combine with straw, grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas and flavours. The trademark smoky oak is less obvious than in earlier vintages. It’s tight, firm and lively on the palate with racy acidity and clean lines. A stunning chardonnay to drink or cellar. Now to nine years. 13 per cent alcohol. 93/100 – Huon’s Wine 360
