2010 Hill-Smith Estate Chardonnay, Eden Valley, South Australia

( £11.99, 13.5%, Negociants )

This doesn’t have a stockist in the UK yet, but it surely won’t be long before it does. It’s more immediate than the subtler FDW Chardonnay from the same Yalumba stable, but it’s still a very tasty modern Chardonnay with notes of citrus and honeydew melon, subtle oak and a bright, lemony finish.
