Chardonnay - 2017 Beechworth Vic
Few places in Australia produce Chardonnay as good as Beechworth's.
It is now recognised as one of the best places in Australia for fine Chardonnay. Made with fruit from the famous Smith's vineyard by our favourite viticulturist/winemaker Mark Walpole, this wine is a case in point. The first impression is of opulent, ripe fruit, in the stone fruit end of the spectrum. This is tempered beautifully by a bright, pleasantly puckering acidity and a nice layer of very expensive French Oak. The combination makes for a bold, full and refreshing wine, a fine example of contemporary Australian Chardonnay.
