Lark Hill Chardonnay 2012

Lark Hill have fashioned a very good chardonnay here from the Canberra District.  The aromatics initially lept out of the glass, reminding of nectarine, white peach and apricot.  But within a couple of minutes they settled to cooler climate grapefruit, lemon and lime expressions of chardonnay.  The palate is an exercise in cool climate chardonnay – the high acid tension ably accompanies restrained grapefruit and lemon characters and a medium length finish.  In style, the balance and acidity reminded of white Burgundy, without the oak influence.  Another successful release from Lark Hill.  Good
