Composed and refined

Howard Park Allingham Chardonnay 2016, Margaret River, AUD $89

A beautifully composed wine, taut and refined, with subtle layers and bright acidity. The flavours are intense yet restrained. The oak is fine and exquisitely handled. Beautiful now though its still youthful and has plenty of room to grow. (Screwcap)
