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 2018 Chardonnay’s are nothing short of exceptional.
“It’s tight and structured, but has generosity of flavour and sizzled hazelnut butter warmth, allied to juicy lime and stonefruit flavours. Peppermint and white flowers. Struck match, a coolness of mint and fennel, cashew, flinty texture, and a very long and powerful finish, and I’m thinking grilled lime, cinnamon spice and fresh herbs. It’s a stellar release, as far as I’m concerned. Epic” 97 Points The Wine Front
