Wine of the Week AU

Pike & Joyce Sirocco Chardonnay 2016, Adelaide Hills, AUD $36

Rich and heady with meringue, nougat and honey aromas. The palate has great harmony and balance with the perfect amount of fruit intensity. Powerful flavours inside an elegant frame. Lovely now, though will benefit from a little time in bottle. An exceptional chardonnay, especially considering the price. (Screwcap)
