De Bortoli Villages Chardonnay 2016

From selected parcels of the “villages” of Dixon’s Creek, TarraWarra and Woori Yallock. Each parcel fermented separately and then blended.

De Bortoli,Villages, Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, 2016

Aromas of cream, lime, Jersey caramel, spiced seedy/twiggy oak and fruit of quinces, peaches and nectarines. Lovely juxtaposition between aforementioned rich fruits, the balanced oak and a taut, linear mouth feel. Long length of flavour that echoes with lime and peach stone fruit. A thoughtful, considered wine that demands focus and enjoyment and provides great value.

RRP:  $20
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 17/20
