Richwhite-wolfCATEGORY WINNER: Wolf Blass Gold Label Chardonnay 2014 Australia $22.99 +218578 The only repeat category winner this year is a celebration of consistency. The gold label series is special, focusing entirely on wines that express place and grape. High-altitude Adelaide Hills fruit gives this oaked chardonnay focus. Flinty like good white Burgundy, with lemon curd and crème brulée favours, this vintage saw very low yields with tremendous concentration, lending extra richness.
