The Lane Vineyard Unoaked Chardonnay 2009

The Lane Vineyard's fruit used to go into the Stavedog Lane range which won so many trophies and acclaim from the critics that it is understandable that John and Helen Edwards would want to play with the fruit themselves. They set up the cellar door and a restaurant which offers one of the best vineyard views in the Adelaide Hills.

The wine doesn't really offer much on the nose but I do get a hint of white nectarine.  Once on the palate there is the same white nectarine with a touch of nuttiness before a whack of sweetness hits you in the face. While I like the nectarine action the palate falls very short like a diver standing on the edge of the platform before they take the final plunge.
