Willow Bridge Dragonfly Chardonnay 2013 (Geographe, WA)
12.8%, Screwcap, $17
The Willow Bridge train rolls on. Very much in the vein of the 2012, yet with more acidity and slightly sharper edges, this bright and crisp Chardonnay is driven by peach fruit in a very fresh and vibrant form. It’s not going to win any prizes for complexity, but in the $17 Chardonnay stakes this is certainly fresher and more vital than most. Good.
Score: 16.8/20, 89/100
Would I buy it? Only a glass prospect. Would be good if you’re thirsty methinks – maximum refreshment.
