Keith Tulloch 2021 Hunter Valley Chardonnay
Colour is fine straw green with flecks of pastel lemon-yellow.
This Chardonnay shows aromatic hints of golden pineapple and banana over the finer perfumes of nectarine and peach. Wild-ferment esters deliver elegant scents of oyster-shell, flint, and mineral. Subtle French oak adds to the mix with spicy hints of brioche and vanilla. The palate flavours combine juicy nectarine and tangy peach, yellow melon and fig fruits with a yoghurt-like creaminess onto a long soft finish.
This wine is already great drinking.
