Blackbilly Chardonnay 2014, McLaren Vale, Australia (750ml)
|| Grapes :||100% Chardonnay|
|| Type:||Dry White|
|| Region:||Adelaide Hills|
| Medium straw with a slight green hues. White peach, lemon curd with a waxy macadamia nut note. Light buttery complexity and some funky aromatics from the wild yeast influence and lees stirring. Clean, crisp acid with stone fruit and lemon zest/pith. Some phenolic lift from the oak adds interest and appeal. Needs a little time to meld together. Can be paired with King George whiting with a pesto crust. Drink now but short term cellaring (to 5 years) will add further complexity and varietal definition.
