Wine of the Week AU

Tolpuddle Vineyard Chardonnay 2016, Tasmania, AUD $70

An alluring, heady aroma of fresh cream, gentle ginger spice and lemon butter. The grapefruity palate is deliciously textured and long with an outstanding phenolic frame. A sophisticated, well-made wine that has presence, style and intensity. Highly recommended. (Screwcap)
