2021 Shaw + Smith Lenswood Vineyard Chardonnay

Fermented wild in new and used 500L puncheons; maturated for 10 months with occasional stir. Among the country’s varietal exemplars. Transparent and tensile with an additional nuance of flavour, vibrato and mineral cohesion etched into the firmament of complexity each year. White peach, toasted hazelnut, jasmine and nougatine teem long. The oak, nestled beautifully, serves as a framing backdrop rather the centrepiece. A wine of precision, intense flavours and immense class. 96 Points. Ned Goodwin M.W. Halliday Companion
