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.
