Crystallum

Clay Shales Chardonnay 2013

The Finlayson boys know how to make a great Chardonnay. This 2013 has a great nose of stone fruit and pineapple. Drinks softly and gently - nothing disturbing in this wine. Lacks a bit of length and complexity to be at the very top but still very,very nice. — 7 days ago
