Coldstream Hills Deer Farm Chardonnay

A delightful bouquet at once epitomises the pristine lemon blossom, white peach, grapefruit and fig of Upper Yarra chardonnay and at the same time the beautiful nutmeg and vanilla overlay of sensitively handled French oak. The palate is a spectacular continuation of the same show, strung together by an intricate, silver thread of cool season acidity, driven by an undercurrent of finely textured minerality. A sensational and beautiful single vineyard Upper Yarra chardonnay that lingers with undeterred line and wonderful persistence. $39 at Templestowe Cellars.
