2011 Bird on Wire Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, Victoria

( £35-£38, 13%, Naked Wines )

The whites were much more impressive than the red from this Yarra Valley estate in 2011. This cool climate Aussie Chardonnay is deliberately made in a fairly wild, funky style and it works: savoury and complex, with subtle oak and notes of oatmeal, honey and lemon zest. Lovely.
