Borderland Estates Flocking Galloots Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2013
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
In any one year we find some great things. A few months ago Parker and the wine consultant Bourke unearthered a fabulous collection of Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale Chardonnay's. To be frank this is not the pick of them but I have adjusted for this with the price. Which brings us back to the concept of value. When you drink a wine please do so with your eyes open.
It's the best ever you may say, but if it cost $150 a bottle this does not do a lot for me. I prefer value which combines the concept of best ever with the price paid. I know Raveneau and Le Flaive very well but this humble Flocking Galloots wins my heart because it gives you flavour and precision and thus value.
