Coombe Farm Chardonnay 2012


I thought this a pretty good sort of a chardonnay from Coombe Farm in the Yarra Valley.  A pale lemon colour in the glass, it has aromatics that remind of stones, with some lemon and hazelnut.  On the palate, this is a restrained style of chardonnay.  There are expressions of peach and lemon, but moreish hazelnuts feature.  Quite enjoyable really.  Overall, a good quality chardonnay that appeals for its balance, restrained flavours while retaining depth and some nice length.  Good
