Nutty and lemony

Tyrrell’s Vat 47 Chardonnay 2015, Hunter Valley, AUD $75

This outstanding chardonnay has the benefit of three years of age, at a time when many wineries have already released their 2017s. The bouquet presents charming cashew, almond, honey, lemon and citrus aromas while the taste is refined and intense, delicate and multi-faceted. It’s very long and seamless in the mouth. (Screwcap)
