Even Keel Chardonnay

This is a small price to pay for a Mornington Peninsula chardonnay of such fruit integrity of spicy grapefruit, fig and anise, lifted by a bouquet of pretty lemon blossom and mixed spice. A wine of balance and poise drawn out by a long finish of focused fruit definition and perfectly gauged mineral acidity. The price may be explained by an absence of retail and wholesale margins – as far as I can ascertain, it’s only available direct from the estate by the dozen.
