Freycinet Vineyards East Coast Tasmania Chardonnay 2013

Standard

Halliday 95, Mike Bennie 91+, Jeremy Oliver 91

How time flies. Bought this way back in December 2014, sold a couple of cases, but since then it hasn’t seen the light of day, either actually or via an email. Looking at the recommended drinking windows, I’m thinking this wine is all the better for it and it didn’t have to take up space in your fridge all that time!

The Halliday and Mike Bennie comments are in the attachment. Here’s what Jeremy Oliver (jeremyoliver.com) says:

“Very supple and gentle, with a reserved bouquet of peach, pear, apple and suggestions of tropical fruit subtly backed by light creamy vanilla oak. It’s forward and lively, extending with a delicate, fluffy expression of pure stonefruit and pear towards a soft, but tightly focused finish. It should build richness and depth in the bottle. Drink 2018-2021. 91 points.”

11 bottles in Melbourne @ S$63, can be here mid-August if ordered.
