Fire Gully Chardonnay 2008

Fire Gully is a Pierro label.  I find that a lot of Australian chardonnays more closely resemble the Chassagne-Montrachet model, whereas I felt that this wine tended to fit more in the spicy Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault end of the spectrum.  It had an aroma of peaches, evident spices, very restrained oak, and some minerality.  The palate had somewhat restrained notes of minerals, spice and length that showed itself with time in the glass.  A pleasant wine.  Completely different to Pierro's premier offering.  84 points.
