WINE: 17 OCTOBER 2014

The Winesmiths 2013 Chardonnay

South Australia | 12.5 per cent alcohol | $19/2.0 litres

I don’t often write about wine casks — or ‘bladder packs’ as one critic described them — simply because their contents are usually pretty ordinary.

The smartly packaged range under The Winesmiths label, which also includes pinot grigio, tempranillo and shiraz, certainly lifts the standard.

This is a good middle-of-the-road chardy showing fresh melony and stonefruit flavours and a well balanced touch of fruit sweetness.
