Chardonnay - 2016 Beechworth Vic
Few places in Australia produce Chardonnay as good as Beechworth's.
Made with fruit from the famous Smith's vineyard by our favorite viticulturist/winemaker Mark Walpole, this wine is a case in point.
The first impression is of opulent, ripe fruit, verging on the tropical end of the spectrum. This is tempered beautifully by a bright, pleasantly puckering acidity. The combination makes for a bold, full and refreshing wine, a fine example of contemporary Australian Chardonnay.
