Funky chardonnay

Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay 2015, Margaret River, AUD $45

This is an exciting and slightly funky wine, with ‘wild’ complexities including low-level sulfides, the bouquet smoky, toasted-nutty and multi-layered. It bridges traditional chardonnay generosity and finely sculpted restraint. A superb character-filled wine. (Screwcap)
