This is a remarkable chardonnay whatever the price. The aromas are smoky, toasted-nuts and nougat; the palate fine and lively, lean and understated, yet intense. Lemon, mandarin and grapefruit flavours; great energy, line and length. A bargain. Now to six years. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 96/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: grilled marron tails

Stockists: Cellarbrations Rozelle, Sydney; Smith Street Cellars Fitzroy, Melbourne
