Gartelmann Wines [NSW], Orange Vineyard "Lisa" Chardonnay 2017

This current "Lisa" Chardonnay release with its redesigned minimalist label, strikes all the right chords of a Cool Climate Chardonnay
The Chablis-like thread displays elegance and power...seductively gentle but with a firm grip.
It is well-crafted without overt manipulation, allowing the melony / citrus minerally flavours and aromas to weave their magic, supported by fine French oak.
The avoidance of malo-lactic fermentation allows the freshness to express itself.
It displays an ideal balance of power, finesse, complexity and depth of flavour which will reward some cellaring.
Price: $40
