    2021 Shadowfax 'Midhill' Chardonnay

    • $72.00

    About The Wine

    Appearance: Light straw, green hue and brilliant clarity.

    Aroma: This distinctive Macedon ranges chardonnay bursts from the glass with white florals, mineral notes, lemon and grapefruit pith. Hints of lees are complexed with toasty oak notes. The perfume is persistent and intriguing, pure, yet complex.

    Palate: Grapefruits and limes spill immediately onto the palate. Zesty sherbet acidity provide focus and length, with flicks of mineral notes. A concentrated palate is long and intense yet continually develops, whilst grapefruit pith phenolics add further complexity and structure.


    95 POINTS

    A classy chardonnay strutting its cool-climate credentials with aplomb. Flinty, fine and pure; long and persistent across the palate. It teases out citrus, woodsy spices and lemon curd flavours yet sits comfortably in a savoury zone. It’s moreish and irresistible in equal measure.
