Classic stone fruit nose with peach and nectarines supported by some cooler climate lemon. More of a traditional chardonnay on the palate with some buttery lees notes. Still has some cooler climate nuances driven by green apple acidity. Drinking well.
Granite Hills Chardonnay 2018, Macedon Ranges, Victoria
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
