James Halliday - Wine Companion 2020
Ned Goodwin MW, Halliday's Wine Companion
"In Covid-repose, I've been enjoying Savaterre - which is among the finest of Australian chardonnay. The 2017 is the best yet and draws on sub-alpine diurnal shifts and ample acidity, accentuated by the Beechworth region's granite soils. Mid-weighted, pungently mineral and brimming with stone-fruit scents flecked with nougat, it is deserved of at least five-years in the cellar. Better, eight."
