L.A.S. Vino St Mary’s Jerusalem Chardonnay 2015, Margaret River, AUD $65-$70
A very fine and yet very complex, delicious chardonnay with toasted almond barrel-ferment characters and finely textured palate. Clean, dry aftertaste, beautifully balanced. From Nic Peterkin, son of Pierro’s Mike Peterkin. (Cork)
