Ballandean Estate NV Range Reserve

This is my go to sparkly whenever we have a picnic in Girraween National Park, something I can highly recommend to anyone, goes great with a picnic hamper you can order at Ballandean Estate and comes your way courtesy of The BarrelRoom

An uncomplicated wine but great easy drinking. 100% Chardonnay the wine has a persistent bead, with stone fruits and brioche on the bouquet. The palate is long, clean and refreshing with stone and citrus fruits, certainly has some zest with hints of gingery spice. This dry wine finishes with driving granitic mineral characters. So easy to drink and such delicious drinking. It’s certainly not Veuve but get into this one you won’t be disappointed.
