Yabby Lake, Block 6 Chardonnay 2013
A superb wine from a vintage not as fêted as 2010 or 2012 but by a producer that’s one of the region’s best and most consistent – as is its winemaker Tom Carson. A serious, savoury and linear Chardonnay that has extraordinary purity of tart citrus and guava fruit, along with cashews, smoky-stony minerals and floral notes. Refreshing acidity and firm structure will see this last for the long haul.
