Steels Gate Chardonnay 2012 (Yarra Valley, Vic)
12%, Screwcap, $28
Sourced from the dry-grown estate vineyard, this was barrel fermented with 35% going through malo. Lots of promise in this young label.
Good, heading to very good, refreshing style.
Tasted: April 2014
Score: 17.7/2, 92/100
Would I buy it? I’d drink two glasses, maybe not enough oomph for a third. In another year though?
