Savaterre defiantly falls into the category as one of favourite Australian Chardonnay producers. Owner, Keppel Smith produces his Chardonnay’s in Beechworth, Victoria where the granite hills produce deep, flavoursome, powerful wines.
All of the Savaterre wines have seemed to go from strength to strength over the last few vintages and the new 2017 Chardonnay’s are nothing short of exceptional.
“Stonefruit, lemon peel, fennel, white flowers, nougat and some struck match. It’s flavoursome, a little toasty and spicy, intense almost grapefruity acidity along with a caramel richness, distinct chalky/quartz-like texture, pulp and pith citrus bitterness on a very long finish. A very good Chardonnay here. Very.” 95 Points The Wine Front
