You'll have no trouble telling our two Antipodean Chardonnay wines in the Best in Show selection apart -- which is exactly as it should be, as place-related differences step to the fore in winemakers' thinking and craft. This wine is more greensilver than gold, and packed with aromatic floral lime, underscored by a swirl of cream from barrel-fermentation. It's vivid and fresh without being skinny, lean or over-taut -- clearly a Chardonnay at ease with its cool climate. Yet the layers are there, too, like exposed sedimentary strata, giving the wine a vertical dimension which will carry it effortlessly through a meal.
