Wakefield Estate Label Chardonnay 2021

South Australia, AustraliaAustralian chardonnay has come a long way, as evidenced by this 70/30 Padthaway/Clare Valley blend. Bright and aromatic with fresh lemon, vanilla, and cream on the nose. The palate is vibrant with peach, nectarine, and lightly toasted cashew streaked with lemon pith acidity. Only a tiny portion of new French oak is used to broaden the palate without quashing the fruit, leaving the finish clean and elegant. Halibut would be a good match. At $19, I say back up the truck.Tasted: 05 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
