Plantagenet Great Southern Chardonnay

The tangy elegance of Great Southern makes its graceful mark, even in the generous Gin Gin clone in the warm, early 2013 season. The result is a beautifully balanced chardonnay, expressing the intensity of this clone, while upholding a fragrant delicacy of almond blossom and a refreshing tang of tightly defined acidity. Cashew nut French oak is subtle and supportive, showcasing elegantly poised fruit of lingering persistence. $27 at Winecave.
