Houghton Reserve Chardonnay 2018

Fruit sourced from Swan Valley, plus cooler climes of Margaret River and further south to Pemberton.

Houghton, Reserve, Chardonnay Western Australia, 2018

Lemon tart and yellow stone fruit skin, nougat with creamy butter wrap influences. Peach and carrying some mealy elements. Heading into full bodied territory, it has underlying electricity giving just enough voltage before a short, creamy yet medicinal finish. Will finds fans who want a fuller bodied chardy at a lower price point.

RRP: $14.99
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 16.5/20
