20/03/2016 – M&S Tumbarumba Chardonnay 2014

(2016) Tumbarumba is a small region of New South Wales in the western foothills of the Snowy Mountains, and a relatively cool area. This Chardonnay, with very modest oak influence, shows suitably cool climate aromatics with a touch of flint and not too ripe orchard fruits with hints of hazelnut and fig. On the palate it is lean and racy, a fattish core of lemon and juicy peach is offset by the creamy oak and crisply defined acidity. Not showy, but très classy. Note that at time of review M&S online will also take 25% off a case of 12 bottles, bring the price down to a very appealing £9 per bottle.
