Mr Barval Chardonnay 2019 Western Australia Margaret River
Medium golden in the glass. Complex on the nose with the fruit turning to green and tropical – apple, pear, banana, pineapple, green papaya. Acidic drive on the first sip, but softens after some time in the glass, blending in with the rational use of oak and the medium (+) alcohol. Creamy texture, but not overpowering what Chardonnay is supposed to be – a refined refreshment. Long finish. Overall, could use a bit more depth, but this is a very good wine at the price point.
