DRINK OF THE WEEK
18th February 2019
Burra Brook Chardonnay
Marks and Spencer £7.00
Drinker Rating 90
We have to talk about Chardonnay. Also we have to talk about oak. There are those of you who still baulk at the idea of oak and chardonnay and you really shouldn't. It's about time you gave them both another try and this Aussie white from M&S might just be your gateway.
Yes, there was too much sub-standard and over oaked chardonnay on the market some time ago. It got incredibly popular and then we all got bored with it.
It's back, but subtlety is the order of the day today. This is a belter, The fruit shines through, lime and pinapple to the fore and this is supported, not dominated by a gently use of oak - bringing just a touch of vanilla.
Go on, give it another look.
