    This cool sit Burgundian Chardonnay has aromas and flavors of Golden apple, toast, butterscotch and citrus on a Chablis-like and flinty frame. Slight tropical whispers and hints of stone fruit pop up on the chiseled and green flecked finish. An amazingly pure and site specific wine for not much money.

    The two man team behind the Shaw & Smith wines have really come onto something great in their winemaking style. This Chardonnay comes from coastal vineyards and the cooler site is really reflected in the bright, high acidity present. That acidity is not overwhelming however, thanks to the aging on lees in French oak. This gives some good weight to the wine and draws out the fruit characters as well. I'm loving this producer now and if you're a fan of Chablis, this is right up your alley.

    A perfectly judged Chardonnay that strikes a precise balance between richness and restraint. This wine has the flinty, mineral, smoky edge that is so intriguing and is so en vogue in Australia right now but at the same time the wine has broad, mouth filling texture, lovely fruit weight and ripeness caressed with refined oak tones, all drawn out on the palate by vibrant (but not austere acidity). It's a very flavorful wine with concentrated white peach, ripe citrus, almond, brioche, some baked pear emerges as it warms in the glass, a saline edge adds whispers of Chablis. Such a great bottle of Chardonnay; I think almost everyone could find something to enjoy here.
