Buy of the Week AU

Blackstone Paddock Limited Release Chardonnay 2017, Margaret River, AUD $15

This dual trophy winner is complex, rich and satisfying, totally astonishing at the price. The soft, rounded, ample palate also retains finesse and subtlety, while the bouquet is big on smoky reduction, toasty oak and grilled nuts, with grapefruit and honeyed details. The bargain white of 2017. (Screwcap)
