Windowrie The Mill Chardonnay 2014

Cowra is a hot region (for wine) and the warmest of the three New South Wales Central Ranges districts with a mean January temperature of 24.2c.  The 2014 chardonnay is nonetheless crafted in a leaner style, suggesting earlier picking, a stylistic choice or perhaps both.  Its aromatics remind of lemon, stone and straw.  The palate has flavours of lemon, straw and cheese, with some youthful spritz and noticeable quite tart acidity that affected the wine’s balance.  Acceptable
