ANDEVINE RESERVE 2017 HUNTER VALLEY CHARDONNAY
Hunter Chablis through and through. It’s delicate and articulate, pure and particularly long, but does deliver a fine amount of citrus and green melon flavour, with a wisp of smokiness and cinnamon. Beautiful clean acidity, and a limey tang through the finish. So nicely done. I’m impressed. Very. Best served with a light chill, and a bucket of tiger prawns.
