    2022 Shadowfax 'Macedon' Chardonnay

    • $42.00


    About The Wine

    Appearance: Light straw, green hue and brilliant clarity. 

    Aroma: This distinctive Macedon ranges chardonnay bursts from the glass with citrus fruits, nectarine and lemon curd. Hints of lees derived nougat, fresh bagel and mineral notes are complexed with toasty oak notes. The perfume is persistent and intriguing, belying the complex and powerful wine beneath.

    Palate: Grapefruit zest and tangerine fruits spill immediately onto the palate. These fruit flavours are augmented with wild ferment characters such as choux pastry and barrel spice complexity. The wine walks a tightrope, with sherbet acidity and lime pith falling off the side. The concentrated palate is long and intense yet continually develops through your first, second and third glass. A great example of cold climate Macedon ranges Chardonnay. Enjoy.

It is headed by Chief Winemaker Alister Timms, who leads the small and innovative winemaking team. Shadowfax has a strong focus on regionality with fruit produced from its vineyards in the Macedon Ranges as well as their own Minnow vineyard in Werribee. Renowned wines include chardonnay and pinot noir as well as a selection of single-vineyard releases and unique French varieties.
