Lerida Estate is a relative newcomer, making wine for less than 10 years. The winery is beautifully located on the shores of what used to be Lake George.
The 2006 Lerida Chardonnay has an attractive flavour profile with stone fruit and a significant peach flavour being dominant. The wine is elegant and has a smooth finish. The only drawback is the mouthfeel, which is somewhat linear and not as round as it could be.
Not a wine for long term cellaring, but a good drink now.
