PHI Yarra Valley Chardonnay

Delicacy without bracing acidity is a fine line in cool climate chardonnay, and PHI strikes an impeccable balance in 2012. With intricate purity, magnificent tension and detailed focus, this is an exceptional release for one of the Yarra’s great chardonnays. Struck flint and delicate lemon zest define a well honed yet impeccably seamless palate of fine, mineral structure; a silver thread of graceful flow and great potential. $38 at Dan Murphy’s.
