We were after a lighter, lower alcohol chardonnay in 2011 and as a result picked early. Hard to believe it’s a chardonnay – in over 100 blind tastings – people pick it as a Sauvignon Blanc, and it’s a pretty special one. Although the zesty notes may have to do with the telephone cable that was dug up during planting. In any case, the bill from Telstra was pretty zesty.
