Food Pairings for The Colonial Estate Chardonnay Adelaide Hills Exodus
[94 pts Stephen Tanzer] Pale gold. Gorgeous aromas of tangerine white peach nectarine iodine pine nut jasmine and fennel with a lush buttery overlay and hints of stone flowers and lees; this could easily pass for high-end Meursault. Spicy focused and vibrant but also possesses serious weight and a chewy texture. The lush pear peach and buttery anise flavors expand and deepen on the extremely long finish with a late snap of minerality bringing things into sharp focus. Major-league superconcentrated Australian chardonnay one of the two best I tried this year along with the 2004 from Giaconda.
