Athena’s Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

Great accolades from Jancis Robinson and her MW’s team, listing the 2013 Athena’s Vineyard Chardonnay as the top Australian chardonnay.

Simply gorgeous on the nose with a honeyed oak scent plus ripe tropical fruit and a smoky flint aroma too. Just as rewarding on the palate, with that smoked meat note really lifting the palate. Fully loaded, but at a low alcohol. Another beautiful Australian postmodern Chardonnay - but with more flesh and fruit than many. 17.5
