2013 Balgownie Black Label Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
91

The Balgownie black label wines are produced from vineyards in the Yarra Valley, the wines provide contrasting styles to those produced from Bendigo and represent good value.

The 2013 Chardonnay is headlined by a pure varietal expression of stone fruits that are backed by ripe fig and a touch of winemaker derived flint and spice. There is a tussle on the palate between expressive nectarine and peach with slightly worked mealy notes vying to be seen, the wine finishes with good length and fig complexity.
