Buy of the Week AU

Hoddles Creek Estate Chardonnay 2017, Yarra Valley, AUD $22

A beautifully restrained, understated chardonnay with ultra-discreet oak, which really over-delivers for its price. There are dried-herb, spice, passionfruit and dried-flower notes in the bouquet and, while the palate emphasises the fruit, it has some underlying complexity. (Screw-cap)
