BK Wines “Swaby” Chardonnay, 2013

Nothing short of glorious. Think Hallelujah Chorus. It straddles the two Chardonnays, if you will, the woodsy New World and brassy old in a Cirque de Soleil exactness that is both rapturous and confounding. And, in doing so, I think it would satisfy a Burgundy snob as well as a punter out for a good bottle with salmon. What’s going on in the Adelaide Hills to produce such finery? South Australia rules: So much depth, peach, tangerine, butterscotch, menthol, hay, it’s astonishing. And, get this: All this artistry at 12.5% alcohol. There is a Santa Claus. Not available in Canada.

Price: I don’t know how I parted with so much money, but I did, and although I don’t regret it, I do cringe: $40 USD

 

Market Liquidity: Tidings of comfort and joy.
