Shottesbrooke, Single Vineyard Series, Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, 2017
Intense, complex and powerful aromas: Stonefruit (nectarine rather than peach), pristine grapefruit and lemon zest biscuit. Hints of green apple and straw bale with precisely judged oak. The preciseness carries to the palate with each component in beautiful harmony. Bright and clear, unencumbered by heavy oak or searing acidity, the flavour carries long through a persistent finish. An exemplar chardonnay of balance.
