Wine of the Week AU

Pike and Joyce Sirocco Chardonnay 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $38

Aromas of lemon butter and ripe white nectarine plus some very gentle gunflint. The palate has a beautiful open, inviting nature. Full-flavoured, opulent and juicy, yet restrained. I adore the supple, gracious nature of the palate. A very well-made and approachable cool-climate chardonnay.
