Innocent Bystander Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2017 £17.95
INNOCENT BYSTANDER YARRA VALLEY CHARDONNAY
The Yarra is a classic Chardonnay growing area with some of the finest in Australia hailing from here. Innocent Bystander offers an excellent value version yet is still full of the regions alpine influences and flinty soils.
Unoaked but with lovely malolactic treatment this is a taut, citrusy, refreshing, textural Chardonnay, rounded out with creamy oak and cashew notes.
Drinks well on release but will reward cellaring for 3-5 years. Try this with fresh Turbot in a chive sauce or Roast Chicken with Chipolatas.

James Halliday: 94 Points
A complex bouquet, with some funky elements sets the scene; the palate swells with stone fruit and creamy/figgy nuances, but just when you think this may be too much of a good thing, citrussy acidity sweeps the mouth clean and refreshed.
