Hoddles Creek Estate Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Hoddles Creek again tops the value stakes, delivering much more complexity and fruit integrity than its price suggests. This is a great vintage of grand complexity of charcuterie, riding over a focused and well defined backdrop of tangy grapefruit, celebrating its cool climate site. Tight acid, even line and impressive persistence declare a serious chardonnay with potential to further improve for some years yet. $19 at Canterbury Wines, Cloudwine, Barrique and Australian Wine Centre.
