Savoury chardy

Geoff Weaver Lenswood Chardonnay 2012, Adelaide Hills, AUD $40

With the benefit of some bottle-age, this restrained but mellow chardonnay has a mid-yellow hue and a rich, smoky, toasty bouquet which is generous and complex. Ample roast hazelnut flavours, modest alcohol and a clean, dry, savoury finish. It’s ageing gracefully and will keep a while yet. (Screwcap)
