2013 Bobar Yarra Valley Chardonnay

bobar lethbridge 011“Inquisitive Man has so extended the range and depth of human knowledge that it is impossible for a single mind to comprehend its entirety; that being so, it would seem essential that some should attempt to create a synthesis of all the parts, not with the authority of disciplinary experts, but with a skill in showing the relationship of the parts to each other — at the risk of making fools of themselves.” – Ervin Schrödinger

Cloudy, savoury Yarra Valley Chardonnay although the warmth of the season pushes some primary fruit to the surface.

A general nuttiness, plenty of chicken stock, some marmalade and washed rind cheese funk all penetrated by apricots and peaches. Rounded, harmonious and creamy with a lick of tannin. Flavour groups around the front and mid-palate but there is plenty of citrus pith persistence. I’ve attempted to pick it apart but ultimately it resisted. It’s a wine to stand a little further back from. I’m giving it an extra point because I finished the bottle over the course of an evening and still wanted more. 93
