De Bortoli Sacred Hill Chardonnay 2007: Very clean, vibrant golden colour. Crisp, fresh tropical fruit aromas of peaches & nectarines. No oak, very concentrated fruit, melon, mandarins, apricots, peaches, nectarines. Should be really good with a simple chicken dish.

One of my favourite oaked chardonnays at the moment, this is a buttery creamy tropical fruit ensemble, reminiscent of classic white burgundys but with a modern twist. The aromas and flavours mix peaches, mango, and papuya with a juicy squeeze of lime, and the wine carries a superb weight and structure in the mouth through to a wonderfully elegant finish. Top stuff for under £10.
