Pale to medium lemon in colour. Immediate impressions- Oaky, Leesy, white peach, hazelnut - profound aromatics. A medium to full bodied palate with these same peachy leesy nutty flavours - a little broad - medium minus acid. Savaterre from Beechworth is near Giaconda, who many wine professionals in Australia, think make the best Chardonnay in Australia. The label on this Savaterre recommends decanting which I didn’t do. Rarely decant whites.

A lively crisp Chardonnay fleshing out nicely at 7 years in a very good place. From the cool climate Beechworth area in the gravelly soils in the foothills of the Victorian Alps. Great balance - not too lean and not too Dolly Parton. Savaterre is a neighbour of Giaconda , one of Australia’s best Chardonnays.

Fresh citrus and vanilla nose. Glorious sweet fruit. Complex and full bodied - very burgundian. Fruit, mineral and oak in perfect harmony, all at 11. Lots of mineral, on firm acid spine. Very long. Love to try this in 10 yrs.
