Wine of the Week AU

Precipice Willow Lake Vineyard Chardonnay 2017, Yarra Valley, AUD $35

Winemaker Marty Singh has nailed the modern, restrained, high-tensile gunflint/mineral style with this wonderful wine from a cool, sought-after Upper Yarra vineyard. Intense lemon and grapefruit flavours allied to smoky, barrel-ferment complexities. Invigorating acidity makes it a superb fish-wine. (Screwcap)
