Bannockburn Chardonnay 2008

I really can’t speak highly enough of the last couple of vintages of Bannockburn’s chardonnay from outside of Geelong (click here for my review of the 2007 vintage).  Tasted blind, the 2008 vintage is bright with a golden colour.  On the nose, clean, with an aroma of citrus, herbs, minerals, oak (but not too much), some buttery malo (but not too much) and melon fruit with a pronounced intensity.  On the palate, long length, medium-high acidity, citrus, peaches and minerals.  Drink this European styled chardonnay over the next couple of years.  93 points.
