Tasting Notes

"2013 BK Wines Chardonnay Swaby Kenton Valley Adelaide Hills Pale yellow. Intense mineral-accented melon and poached pear aromas are deepened by notes of honey and smoky lees. Firm and sharply focused on the palate, with fresh citrus and exotic fruit flavors sharpened by racy minerality and a suggestion of mint. Acts a lot like a wine from Ramonet. The firm, stony finish shows superb clarity and deep melon and orange zest qualities that linger with excellent tenacity. 93" International Wine Cellar
