Giaconda Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
Giaconda wines have a super-cult status and, given the tiny production, are extremely difficult to find. Kinzbrunner has been described consistently as one of Australia's greatest winemakers and was named one of the world's best 10 white wine makers by Decanter magazine.
Subtle aromatics of white peaches and nectarines combine with lemon peel and hazelnuts while the palate has precision with ever present mineral notes tand a tangy finish.

Vintage 2017 - Interesting to taste this alongside the 2014 Leeuwin Estate Art Series, which must surely be two of the most pow pow powerful Chardonnay wines in the country. The Giaconda has, perhaps, more complexity, but it’s the Leeuwin Estate that has the startling length.
