2004 Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
96

A lightly golden yellow in colour with green tinges, a flinty and mineral nose of sour edged nectarine and wood spice. The structure of this wine is superb, it is 10 years old but has a line of racy grapefruit acidity that is the perfect counterpart to the more developed stone fruits and wood spices.

The finish is layered with spice, almond meal, white peach and impossibly precise acidity that gives the finish exceptional length. This wine was bottled under screw cap and will easily go another 5 - 8 years.

Those who haven’t discovered this wine, or some of the premier Chardonnay’s of Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula don’t know what they are missing out on!
