De Bortoli Estate Grown Chardonnay

One of the greats in De Bortoli’s legendary line of chardonnays, this is a magnificent wine of calm effortlessness and yet tension of structure, from what Chief Winemaker Steve Webber sums up eloquently as “a bloody good vintage.” It’s beautifully balanced, poised, refined, finely structured and impeccably focused, uniting lovely complexity of struck match and gunflint with lively grapefruit and lemon zest crunch. $25 direct.
