Wine Of The Week
De Bortoli Sacred Hill Chardonnay, Australia 2014 $5.50
This is a simple but quite delicious young chardonnay, fruit-driven, with little or no oak character. It’s true to type, with peachy aromas, and is bright and fruit-driven, the palate soft and grapy without being obviously sweet. Excellent value. (13 per cent alcohol). Aging: Now to two years.
