Felton Road Block 2 Chardonnay

This is a mesmerising vintage for Block 2, promising to rank among the longest lived yet. Monumental complexity of struck flint and bacon fat provides dimension to this energetically vivacious style, drawn out tight by a high-tensile wire of acidity, melding seamlessly with lemon zest, grapefruit, crunchy pear and almost ripe white peach fruit. The finish carries fine-grained, mineral, mouth-embracing texture, outstanding length and honed, seamless line. $50 at WineStar.
