Wine of the Week AU

Oakdene Liz’s Chardonnay 2016, Geelong, AUD $35

An intensely bright and vibrant chardonnay with energy and fruit restraint. Subtle nutty, biscuity complexity. The palate is long, refined and highly satisfying. It has room to grow so buy a few bottles to drink now, and some others for the cellar.
