Yarra Hills, Chardonnay 2008, New Zealand
Another one of Majestic's special parcels turns up trumps, with a rather nicely-made Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley, normally one of Australia's best - and more expensive - regions
for Chardonnay. This has an attractive nose, with moderate toast and spice, and a sense of luscious ripeness to the fruit. The palate is composed and quite fine, with plenty of
juicy, citrus cut, some tropical notes and a really nicely pitched, balanced finish. Intelligent stuff and a great bargain at the offer price (the partner Cabernet Sauvignon is a pleasingly plump,
juicy wine too). £7.49, Majestic, buy two at £4.99 each.
