Dexter Chardonnay 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $40

Tod Dexter has done it again. The colour is light, bright yellow, the aromas mealy, smoky and nutty with suggestions of toasted barrels. The wine is full-bodied, intense, rich with a long-lasting finish. Power with elegance. Outstanding chardonnay. (Screwcap)
