Refined and complex

Dexter Chardonnay 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $40

A sophisticated modern chardonnay with enviable complexity and interest. The nose is gracious and mealy with just the right mix of varietal fruit and savouriness. The palate is open and inviting with incredible softness and succulence, with generous white peach flavours, bright lively acidity and a little grapefruit pith on the finish. Mouth-wateringly delicious. An excellent price for a wine of this quality. (Screwcap)
