Wine Of The Week AU

santolin-willowlake-chardonnay-2015Santolin Willowlake Vineyard Chardonnay 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $40

The bouquet is discreet, with nutty, toasty, savoury complexities while the palate is restrained, refined, understated but intense, and finishes with impressive persistence. An excellent wine with marvellous detail, which will only grow as it ages. (Screwcap)
