Striking chardonnay

Xanadu Stevens Road Chardonnay 2015, Margaret River, AUD $70

This beautiful wine is neck-and-neck with the more expensive Reserve chardonnay this year, which makes it relatively good value. Backward light to straw hue; fresh, youthful bouquet of nut, nougat and citrus fruits, with subtle oak. Very intense, refined and taut in the mouth with refreshing acidity. A striking wine.
