Chapel Hill The Chosen Gorge Block Chardonnay 2011
Once again this wine is lighter in weight and is more restrained in the flavour spectrum than is normal for your McLaren Vale Chardonnay. The wine started out with a touch of fresh mixed nuts before the flavours moved to lemon and melon rolled in fennel seeds. By the end of the 4 days that I tasted this wine a nudge of grapefruit emerged which was a big surprise for me. If this was in a blind line up I may have said that this was from the Adelaide Hills minus the nectarine flavour that I normally associate with the Hills.
Drink: Give it four years in the bottle before opening them
