Grosset Piccadilly Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills 2014, AUD $67
A wine of extraordinary intensity allied with refinement. Aromas recall preserved lemon, lemon juice and toasted almond. The palate has tremendous line and length. Nervy, vital and refreshing. Just a baby, with a big future. (13 per cent alcohol; screw cap)
