Heritage chardonnay

Hardys Heritage Reserve Bin Chardonnay 2015, AUD $30

This excellent chardonnay is terrific value. It’s unusual to be blended from five regions: Tumbarumba, Yarra Valley, Margaret River, Adelaide Hills and Pemberton. Complex smoky, toast, biscuit and nut aromas; intense, savoury and elegantly lean on the palate, with excellent focus, refinement and length. (Screwcap)
