Hoddles Creek Estate, Road Block, Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, 2018

Creaminess of nougat and light fig with light yellow stone fruit. Bakers spices over lemon/lime rind with the coolness of white marble. Impeccable presence and body. This carries itself with such grace and purity. Richness without corpulence. Limey citrus length that seems endless. A simply beautiful Chardonnay.

RRP: $60
Alc: 12.5%
Rating:  19/20 (95/100)
