Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Unwooded Chardonnay 2012
(McLaren Vale, SA)
12.5%, Screwcap, $16.50
These new Scrubby Rise labels are excellent. A big step up.
A well made wine is this one too. Simple, juicy and tropical on both nose and palate. A clever C02 spritz gives it an effervescent freshness. Very light palate doesn’t have much flavour but its fresh and affable. Twist of sweetness to finish. Decent simple, spritzy, modern white.
Score: 16/20 87/100
Would I buy it? Probably not. Appreciate the winemaking skill though.
