Wickhams Rd Gippsland Chardonnay 2016 **Maybe the best value Chardonnay in Australia-Toni Patterson MW
Fruit from Gippsland but made in exactly the same manner as the Estate range, this Chardonnay has a purity of fruit and beautiful line of acid. We have managed our Gippsland vineyard since 2011, with a emphasis on balanced vines. The Gippsland climate is similar to Hoddles Creek, hence the juice requires no acidification or fining.
Toni PatersonWine lovers have a lot to thank Franco d'Anna for. He crafts his affordable range with the same care and attention as his premium wines meaning that even when watching one's pennies, one can still drink top class wine. This is one of the best Wickhams Road chardonnays in recent years. Restrained lemony fruit with gentle fresh cream and oatmeal. There is excellent grapefruity flavour, a fine structure and bright acidity. Quite possibly the best value chardonnay in Australia right now. Just superb. 2017-06-05
