2009 The Lane Be­gin­ning Chardon­nay, $39 Mod­ern styles of chardon­nay with weight and verve are won­der­fully com­ple­mented by white meats and poul­try. The fo­cus has shifted to em­brace ele­gance, tex­ture and so­phis­ti­ca­tion with a real sense of place. Here’s a bright ex­am­ple from one of the most stun­ning sin­gle vine­yards in the Ade­laide Hills. It’s del­i­cately wrought with pow­er­ful lemon and nec­tarine flavours en­veloped in soft, sen­sual lay­ers of al­mond cream. Both fleshy and fine with a bright cit­rus core and fresh min­eral acid drive.
