Wakefield Estate Label Chardonnay 2021

South Australia, AustraliaI tasted this 14 months ago, and it is pretty much the same delicious screwcap-sealed chardonnay today, namely a 70/30 Padthaway/Clare Valley blend. The nose is bright with fresh citrus, lees, and vanilla. The palate is packed with juicy nectarine and bolstered by lightly toasted cashew through the backside. Only a tiny portion of new French oak broadens the palate without quashing the fruit, leaving the finish clean and elegant. At $19, I repeat, back up the truck. It is in 49 BCL stores.Tasted: 31 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
