Over The Way, Rice’s Vineyard, Chardonnay, Grampians, 2016
Generosity on the palate yet remaining taut when it counts. Nectarine stonefruit and a quartzy mineral rockiness. There’s soft citrus, some custard apple with a hint of pastry, but this just smells right with a suggestion of soft eggy sulfides. Biscuity crisp on the finish with the right amount of oak spice. Good drinking and even better value.
