Food Pairings for Lot 68 Margaret River Chardonnay
Notes: The nose of this delicate Chardonnay from western Australia explodes with tropical fruit full of kiwi, lemon zest, peachy aromas, and a wet, stony minerality. A floral bouquet resonates with the fresh fragrance of spring that is complemented with full peach notes and a flinty, seashell minerality on the palate. On a blind taste, even the expert connoisseur could easily mistake this wine for a neutrally oaked Chablis. The finish envelopes a refreshingly crisp, lemony citrus (the wine is well supported with acidity) with a toasty kiss of French oak. Close your eyes and let the finish linger as lemon custard comes to mind. A clean, bright, fresh wine with just a hint of oak. Enjoy with oysters, clams, or whitefish—preferably on a warm day. Cameron Confidential: Australia is often noted for oaky, fruit-bomb Chardonnays, but the cooler climates produce world class wine. The best Chardonnays in Australia currently hail from Margaret River, though other regions—such as the Mornington Peninsula and Adelaide Hills—are coming on strong. Lot 68 is a straight-forward great deal from an Australian producer looking to expand his business in the US. We hope to continue our relationship with this producer and up the quantities in the future. (We would have taken 10,000 cases of this wine had it been available). This is a gorgeous style of Chardonnay reminiscent of Lot 59. So, if you liked that wine, then you'll definitely want to try Lot 68.
