Have a ball chardy

BK-Wines-One-Ball-Chardonnay-2015BK Wines One Ball Chardonnay 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $32

Alcohols are trending lower and chardonnays are getting more ‘mineral’. This has a smoky struck-flint overtone and a touch of funk, with good fruit beneath. Bright and lively, with crisp palate focus and mouth-watering acidity adding freshness and length. Impressive. (Screwcap)
