After visiting Tasmania in April (check out my Tasmania Wineries blog post) it’s safe to say we have definitely become #TassieWine fans! Both Mr Spittoon and I were craving a nice Chardonnay on Friday, so we headed to our local Dan Murphy’s to see what we could find. We spotted this Tasmanian Chardonnay for $18 and thought we’d give it a go.
The cool-climate in Tasmania is perfect for making Chardonnay – so if you spot a Tassie Chardonnay or a bubbles made with Chardonnay, give it a taste!
I must say for the price, we were both well impressed. It went down a treat and really did satisfy our cravings.
Here are our notes on it:
It’s a pale glistening yellow shade in the glass. On the nose it made me think of lemon butter on toast with a lick of vanilla, hint of white flowers and some juicy nectarines in there. While in the mouth it has that perfect balance of creaminess and acidity with flavours of honeydew melon and nectarines. I really enjoyed the pop of lemon sherbet acidity in this one. Uber refreshing and thirst quenching.
