2016 d’Arenberg The Olive Grove Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
89

It’s pretty hard to go wrong here when it comes to value for money, the wine is a blend of McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills fruit that was matured in a mix of both American and French Oak for seven months prior to a couple of years bottle ageing prior to release.

The nose gives lashings of fig and white peach that’s wrapped in spicy oak. The palate is round, rich and enjoyable with a mealy note that adds complexity. There is plenty of white peach and fig to finish before a well timed twang of grapefruit like bitterness controlls the wines richer notes.
