Giesen The Brothers Chardonnay 2011

This wine stood out in a line up with some chardonnays from Victoria, because you could almost taste its cooler latitude.  Intensely perfumed, its aromatics speak of flint, flowers, stones, pears and apples.  On the palate, its racy acidity is met with carry through flavours of pears and apples, and some lemon pith.  There's some length and bready nuances there too, and the acidity of the wine is in balance.  Enjoyable drinking without being overly challenging.  Good
