Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a lively, zesty Chardonnay from Australia


Published:

A good buy at the price. Straw-coloured with a nose of apple, spice, toast and a touch of barnyard. Medium-bodied with a green pineapple flavour and zesty acidity. Very satisfying with its freshness and lively flavours.

Food match: lobster, salmon

Nugan Estate Chardonnay 2009, Australia, $18.95. Vintages #288191

It’s an Argentinian grill: the Argentinian tradition is to cook over a live fire of hardwood and Argentinian lump charcoal, which imparts a bit of a smoke undertone to the meat along with a charred crust that’s kissin’ cousin to crispy. Rather splendid.
