Chic chardonnay

Fraser Gallop Parterre Chardonnay 2017, Margaret River, AUD $43

Fraser Gallop wines are among the best value in the region, and this one is typical. The youthfully subtle bouquet has elements of cashew, almond, honey and butter while the palate is lively with mouth-watering acidity and is tense, refreshing and invigorating. A fine modern chardonnay. (Screwcap)
