2009 Yalumba Chardonnay FDW, Adelaide Hills, South Australia

( £17.99, 13.5%, Noel Young Wines, Slurp, Winedirect )

Typical (and gratifyingly so) of the top end Chardonnays emerging from Australia’s best cool climate areas at the moment, this is all about structure and acidity rather than easy, up front fruit flavours. Notes of lemongrass, vanilla and citrus fruit are nicely intertwined on the palate, wrapped in a creamy, lees-derived texture.
