Fraser Gallop Parterre Chardonnay 2012

Mid-gold, vibrant hue; the extremely youthful and unevolved the bouquet offers spicy oak, nectarine, grapefruit and struck flint aromas; the palate is tightly wound, with racy, laser-like acidity, charry oak and fine fruit slowly expanding across the finish. Rating: 96 Points; Drink By: 2022 Price: $33.00 Date Tasted: 22 Jan 2013 Alcohol: 12.5% Ben Edwards; Jaes Halliday Wine Companion

The follow-up to the highly acclaimed 2011 Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Chardonnay is a more fine-boned affair. Greater restraint and increased elegance yet the intensity remains undeniable. This is the Chablis of the Margaret River. Did I really just write that? Aromas of orange blossom, pear, grapefruit and nectarine. Clean lines, great clarity. Oak seems dialled down, imparting the most subtle notes of cashew, almond and (ginger) spice while cushioning the impact of a driving mineral spine. A little satisfying phenolic traction to conclude matters. Grace personified with length to burn. 94 Points; Excellent; Region: Margaret River Alcohol: 12.5% Jeremy Pringle; Wine Will Eat Itself
