The results are out for Mr Halliday's Chardonnay challenge and there seem to be a couple of value choices in the winners.
$22 will grab you a bottle of Eden Road 'The Long' Road Chardonnay 2011. With a score of 96 it's bound to tickle your tastebuds.
Potentially even better, $21 can get you a bottle of 2011 Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Chardonnay. At 97 points and described as being "more Chablis like", this one sounds very intersting.
Got over $100 burning a hole in your pocket? Then you can splash out on a bottle of the winner, Penfold's 2008 Yattarna Chardonnay. Maybe they're achieving their goal of producing a white wine to sit alongside Grange. If you're buying a couple of bottles then don't forget to invite me to the opening!
