Australia — Western Australia • $18.95 • 89/100

This is a bright, pleasant Chardonnay from Margaret River in Western Australia. Malolactic conversion has been blocked to maintain acidity, and the wine was aged for a short period in French oak, with 20% new. It is pale straw, slightly smoky and reductive on the attack, with bright lemon and green apple fruit, and some riper melon and white peach notes. The wine is dry, with crisp acidity, moderate alcohol and a medium body. The palate presents both fresh and ripe fruit, with very subtle vanilla and cedary resin adding some depth, and a crisp, mineral-tinged finish. Excellent value. • Tasted 2017-02-18 • LCBO id#350900 • Find it at your nearest LCBOEPIC WINES AND SPIRITS INC. (Agent)
