Stonier Chardonnay 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $25

A full-flavoured chardonnay with good texture and vitality. The fruit is ripe and assertive, reflective of the vintage, with attractive mealy edges. Beautifully integrated acidity and a faint grapefruit undercurrent. A satisfying, complex, delicious wine at a great price. (Screwcap)
