2017 Sophie Block Chardonnay 94 points.
Hand-picked, destemmed, pressed, fermented in French oak (27% new), no mlf. Juicy and rich, exuding a layered white and yellow peach duo, acidity arriving in the nick of time to provide balance and a clear finish. Very Beechworth, although its the fruit rather than the region that takes command.
