Wine of the Week AU

Hoddles Creek Estate Syberia Chardonnay 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $60

A sophisticated aroma with faint nutty sulfides and candied lemon peel, with just enough funk to keep things interesting. The palate is juicy yet refined with an attractive mealy undercurrent and excellent length. A captivating wine of great flavour and style. Serve in a large glass or decant before serving. (Screwcap)
