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.
