GOURMET TRAVELLER WINE
Best Buys $30 and under
This is a delicious, more-ish, modern Yarra Valley chardonnay of modest alcohol (13 percent) and reserved chalky, mineral aromas. There are subtle citrus blossom and floral nuances as well. In the mouth, it’s intense, fruit-driven and finely structured, showing delicacy and great drinkability – a wine of harmony and all-round charm. Drink it now for up to about six years. It was contract made for the proprietor Steve Graham by the very experienced Rob Dolan.

Delightful sweet oak and varietal fruit fragrances of lemon zest and almonds which follows through to the smooth flavoursome palate with well-integrated acidity.
