Killerby Chardonnay 2013

Killerby has been a relative favourite of mine since the early 2000s. A change of ownership meant the closure of my favourite Bunbury cellar door, but the grapes for the Chardonnay have always (as far as I know) come from Margaret River vineyards.

A very youthful pale yellow colour. The nose is dominated by oak at this point, but there's some fairly smart fruit underneath, in the citrus / grapefruit range. There's also a hint of cashew and some savoury, mealy characters.

The palate is complex - oak, acid, citrus (inc nectarine), and savoury, all meshing. Again the cedary oak and tannins dominate at this point but will presumably soften in a year or so, and come into balance.

This is not as immediately appealing as the 2011 and 2012 were, but a good wine nonetheless.
