Buy of the Week AU

Abel’s Tempest Chardonnay 2015, Tasmania, AUD $25

A true modern chardonnay with restrained lemony fruit, integrated acidity and a long, delicious palate. There is a subtle mealiness, bright and intense flavours plus gentle complexity. I particularly love the soft hints of meringue. It is a superb wine and a complete and utter bargain at $25. Highly recommended
