Cool chardonnay

Burton McMahon D’Aloisio’s Vineyard Chardonnay 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $34

This wine, made from cool Upper Yarra fruit, is light, bright yellow and smells subtly of creamy lees, cashew nut and restrained pear-like fruit. It’s delicate, refined and fruit-driven. Oak is a minor component. An understated chardonnay of great drinkability and charm. (Screwcap)
