Giaconda Chardonnay 2013
GIACONDA ESTATE CHARDONNAY 2013: Vibrant green; the power and extreme complexity of the bouquet literally leap out of the glass, yet the palate lifts the bar further, eerily like a Grand Cru White Burgundy - Chevalier Montrachet comes to mind. The mouthfeel is staggeringly deep, yet full of energy, driving the wine through to an exceptionally long finish. This will surely rival the '96 Giaconda Chardonnay, its drink-to date ultra-conservative. Rating: 98.
"This superb Beechworth chardonnay has mineral, struck match and yeasty mystery with a luxurious undercurrent of fruits and oak. The palate has creamy richness with superb finesse, finishing long and dry."
