Moonstone

This was a Chardonnay-Semillon blend from 2008, made by Heritage Road, with subtitle ‘Moonstone’. It was south-east Australian and 12.5%. There’s really only one thing to say about this wine: classy. Its flavours were so similar to a lot more expensive Burgundy whites that I was quite taken aback, having paid only £3.99 for it! The nose had those wonderful fresh-hay aromas so typical to this style, the body extended them to some extent whilst also cutting through a delicous toffee-butter flavour with some citrus, and the finish was lengthy and dry. I found mine at Sainsbury’s.
