Derwent Estate Chardonnay

The 2007 Derwent Estate Chardonnay is a light bodied wine (when was the last time I said that?) with beautiful fruit and texture. It tastes of white peach and melon, is crisp, but not overly so, with a velvety backbone and a well integrated finish.

This excellent lunch wine won a trophy at the recent Tasmanian show. While I pay no attention to red wine trophy winners, they tend to be more indicative of quality in white wine. This one is decently priced and highly recommended.

Score: 93/+
