Howard Park Western Australia Chardonnay 2006

Chardonnay from Australia - Western Australia
Review Date : 20-Apr-2015
Full, lemon-hued straw-yellow colour with some gold at heart. This has a softly full and voluminous bouquet with gentle and harmoniously integrated aromas of yellow stonefruits and tropical fruits in the savoury secondary stage, melded with nutty and toasty layers. Soft and mouthfilling, with good breadth, citrus and tropical fruits are now showing some savoury interest, with toasty oak noticeable. Moderate richness and depth, with some fine, dry textures underlining the palate. This has developed with elegance. Drink over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit all from the Great Southern region, fully barrel-fermented and aged in 60% new French oak, the wine undergoing minimal batonnage with no MLF. 18.0/20 Apr 2015 RRP $N/A
