Bimbadgen Estate Chardonnay 2011 (Hunter Valley, NSW)
13%, Screwcap, $20
What’s the consensus on these Bimbadgen labels? Like? For mine it looks a little dated considering the pricepoint. Interested to hear more opinions though.
A rather simple wine this one which is surprising considering that a portion was barrel and wild fermented. Odd. Have to start questioning the fruit really…
Simple and direct nose. Hay, lemon, white peach openness in that rather easy Hunter style. Palate looks both sweet and sour, without the congruency of either, oak sitting on top of lean palate. Grapefruit and lemon with a finish that looks tart and flat. Didn’t feel this at all. 15/84
