Restraint and texture

Riorret Lusatia Park Chardonnay 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $45

A highly attractive, though understated nose, with fresh dough, lemon curd and a little spice. The palate is rather fabulous with restraint, texture and lemony juiciness. There is a beautiful core of integrated acidity, which channels and defines the wine. A stunning wine, made from grapes sourced entirely from the Lusatia Park vineyard. (Diam)
