Bannockburn Chardonnay 2012


The 2012 vintage of Bannockburn's chardonnay wears its varietal character on its sleeve.  It's highly expressive at this juncture, at a time when many chardonnays grown on Australian soil aren't.  Heady aromatics of cashew, oil, butter and some oak characters promise a full flavoured wine on the palate.  And the palate is just that, with considerable depth and long length, nuanced with cashew and lemon characters.  This is a good, perhaps even very good, chardonnay, that will suit those in search of a richer style.  Good
