The Lane Block 3 Chardonnay

From the coldest site on this legendary estate, wild yeast fermented in a giant 4,400L French oak ‘foudre,’ this is a seriously intellectual chardonnay at a cheerful price. A leesy, reductive bouquet of struck flint underscores the tension of subtle pear and grapefruit, while the palate is driven by savoury, lees-accented complexity and layered texture, finishing long and well balanced. $20 at Simply Wines.
