Buy of the Week AU

Woodlands Wilyabrup Valley Chardonnay 2016, Margaret River, AUD $29

From one of the region’s best and oldest wineries, this is stunning value for money. Intense grapefruit and lemon fruit aromas are embellished by smoky oak while the lively palate is clean, refreshing and more-ish. The acidity enlivens the finish and leaves you wanting more. (Screwcap)
