Wine of the Week AU

Blackstone Paddock Limited Release Chardonnay 2016, Margaret River, AUD $15

Subtly complex toasted hazelnut, nougat and lightly smoky aromas. Surprising intensity of flavour; penetrating citrus fruits typical of the region – lemon and grapefruit – and a lasting finish. This is a very smart chardonnay and an astonishing bargain at the price. (Screwcap)
