De Bortoli Gulf Station Yarra Valley Chardonnay

2011 is a stunning vintage for Gulf Station Chardonnay, a wine of alluring subtlety, elegant persistence and wonderfully fine texture rarely seen at this price. Frequent lees stirring gin barrel and tank builds complexity, texture and impressive complexity of struck flint and charcuterie. Low yielding Yarra Vines contribute zesty grapefruit and understated white peach. $16 at Aussie Wines, Wine List Australia, No Frills Wine, First Choice and Dan Murphy’s.
