Jones Road Chardonnay 2015, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $38

The Mornington Peninsula has a reputation for ultra-fine chardonnay, and this latest release from Jones Road is another delicious and satisfying example. It is a very complex wine with layers of subtle flavours. Notes of lime marmalade plus a little lemon curd, fresh cream and a touch of spice. The palate is delicately fruity, gently textured and bright, finishing with a little ripe grapefruit. A balanced and harmonious wine that many will enjoy. (Screwcap)
