Tamar Ridge Chardonnay

From Tamar Valley estate vineyards, there’s a dramatic contrast here between lemon blossom delicacy and toasted cashew nut oak, grapefruit and white peach generosity and taut, fine, energetic Tasmanian acidity. Another year in bottle will help it to find its harmony, and it has the stamina to go the distance, thanks to considerable persistence, even line and a finely textured mouth feel. $20 at Discount Wines and Cracka (2011), $22 at Trio Wine (2012).
