Shaw + Smith 'Lenswood' Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, Australia 2014

48.00

Simply put, this is the best Australian Chardonnay we have ever tasted. It was sandwiched between a bottle of Puligny-Montrachet 'Les Grands Champs' P&L Borgeot 2014 and a Ladoix Premier Cru 'Les Grechons' Domaine Chevalier 2014, so the context was demanding, especially as the Ladoix was exceptionally good, but this wine took things to a new level and the astonishing thing is that it comes in at only 12% alcohol. So much fruit insistence and persistence with so little alcoholic clout it's almost baffling! If you are in any doubt as to whether Australia can challenge very serious white Burgundy, then you ought to try this, because it's the gamechanger we have been waiting for. Drink now-2025.
