Paringa 'The Paringa' Chardonnay 2015
The bouquet of this wine is a complex mix of nectarine, citrus and funky indigenous yeast aromas. The palate has similar citrus and stone fruit flavours along with beautiful texture and length. This is an "older world" style of Chardonnay combining both elegance and complexity.
The Wine Front – In some ways it’s lean and in some ways it’s full; it’s sweet-sour and awkward with acidity driving throughout. It has a sweet, almost confectionary character to the nose, like walking in on a baker as s/he dusts icing sugar on pastries. The palate is then lean and pure, almost too lean but with texture and style. It’s touch and go but, particularly given time to breath, just manages to negotiate the tightrope.
In a mixed or straight case: $51.29
