Wine of the Week AU

Kooyong Farrago Chardonnay 2015, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $61

This very complex, charming chardonnay has an aroma of charcuterie-like smoky oak/sulfides over intense grapefruit characters. Full-bodied, concentrated and generous, lively and focused with penetrating acidity and a long persistence. An outstanding wine. (Screwcap)
