2011 Wantirna Estate Chardonnay
A superb young Yarra Valley wine showing how good the region's 2011 chardonnays can be. Deliciously appealing white peach, cashew and smoky characters, and complexity from skilled oak and lees handling. Mouthfeel is silky, seamless; flavour beautifully sustained. (Screw cap; 13 per cent alcohol.)
Ageing? One to four years.
Food ideas Sugar-cured salmon; baked snapper.
