WINE OF THE WEEK: Coonawarra Estate Chardonnay
WYNNS have been making their Coonawarra Estate Chardonnay since 1981, and there’d be few if any vintages have ever disappointed. The now-released 2006 is another ripper under this label, a Chardonnay that’s creamy and soft and yet still crisp, with luscious peach and nectarine flavours dominating and spicy yet subtle oak. While it’ll cellar well for another five years, at $15.99 it’s value-for-money to enjoy now with a seafood main course, or with cheese and fruit as a follow-up.
