Wine of the Week AU

Medhurst Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $28

Bright, light yellow hue and a cashew nut and straw-like bouquet, the palate kicking in peach and nectarine flavours, a trace of fruity sweetness and then minerally acidity on the finish. Rich, clean fruit flavours. A mouth-watering wine, and great value. (Screwcap)
