M’s Wine Review – Philip Shaw No. 11 Chardonnay 2010

Chardonnay? I’ve never been too keen on this grape variety. I’ve tried too many which have disappointed with a lot having had too much time spent in oak resulting in a wine that, to me, simply isn’t appealing.

However, there are plenty of good modern examples of chardonnay on the market. This is one of them! This wine is light, has hints of citrus, minerals, it is medium in density, intense in flavour and complexity and will age gracefully. It does have hints of oak, but the taste is just right!

I’d say it’s an excellent example of how to do chardonnay! And I’d be very happy to try more in a similar style.

Price range $24-$35
