Wirra Wirra 12th Man Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from the Adelaide Hills (Lobethal and Lenswood from memory). Love the consistency of this wine, strong on the stonefruit and its marriage to some meal and spicy oak. 

Good citrus driven palate and acidity, tangy and juicy with fruit supplementing and buoying that spine. The wine is expansive in that the final third enhances this with the addition of some creamy, leesy texture and the presence of oak tannin, all rather mellifluously flowing to a gentle length. Good release. 91
