Wine of the Week AU

Fraser Gallop Estate Chardonnay 2016, Margaret River, AUD $26

This well-priced young chardonnay has a light hue and restrained straw-hay aromas over lemon and grapefruit nuances, which also fill the palate. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing. It has early–picked vitality, purity of fruit and sensitively handled oak. (Screwcap)
