Evans & Tate Metricup Road, Chardonnay, Margaret River, Australia, 2011, 13.5% abv.

Visitors to the 2015 Vancouver International Wine Festival will recognize this delicious Aussie Chardonnay from Evans & Tate that punches above its weight in terms of value for money.

evans tate chardA shade of medium lemon with tears, the nose shows grapefruit pith, Meyer lemon, minerals, lemon grass and toast.

The palate is dry with strong acidity and moderate alcohol.  The flavours are intense and include more lemon, lime and yellow grapefruit citrus, fresh herbs, pineapple, toffee and savoury oak.  The finish is strong.

The flavours and aromas are clear and clean, supported by strong acidity and tasteful, subtle oak ageing.  It lasted several days in the fridge as well with a stopper.  Find it, drink it, share it with friends.

WSET Very Good
