Best Buys $30 and under
This is a delicious, more-ish, modern Yarra Valley chardonnay of modest alcohol (13 percent) and reserved chalky, mineral aromas. There are subtle citrus blossom and floral nuances as well. In the mouth, it’s intense, fruit-driven and finely structured, showing delicacy and great drinkability – a wine of harmony and all-round charm. Drink it now for up to about six years. It was contract made for the proprietor Steve Graham by the very experienced Rob Dolan. HH
