De Bortoli 2017 Yarra Valley Section A5 Chardonnay

Lovers of cool-climate chardonnay in Australia have never had it so good, with the Yarra and Mornington Peninsula, in particular, producing a number of wines of style and elegance. This is in the leading pack with more than a hint of Burgundy about the package; a a single-vineyard wine from the elevated Dixon's Creek sub-region of the Yarra. The vines were planted over 40 years ago and 2017 was a superb chardonnay vintage for wines like this. Winemaker Steve Webber describes it as "fine, citrusy, nutty, textural and considered". It is certainly worth considering for pairing with a roast loin of pork. $55.
