2009 Wedgetail Estate Single Vineyard Chardonnay

Citrus and a touch of caramel, a bit of toast and a nice, open aromatic profile characterize this barrel-fermented Chardonnay. It is immediately pleasant but could round out nicely over a few years in the cellar. Qu├ębec-born Guy Lamothe has been making wine in Australia since the 1980s, first as a home project and, since 1994, on some remarkable slopes in Yarra Valley, planted mostly to pinot noir, shiraz and chardonnay. Right now, Wedgetail Estate wines are available in Australia, Canada, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Time for the U.S. market to catch up. Recommended.
