2013 Shadowfax Midhill Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

Shadowfax have made a change in terms of labellling, with their premium single vineyard wines now bareing the name of the vineyard, so even though this is the first time i have tasted the 'Midhill Chardonnay' i beleive it has been the backbone of the Single vineyard releases for a number of years.

The team at Shadowfax craft some of the best Chardonnay in this country, i'm surprised more people don't know about it. The 2013 Midhill is a superb release, the nose gives consideration to pure stone fruits, toasted almond and some richer lees characters.

This wine is about structure and subtlety, there is suggestion of oak and attractive lees inputs, tightly bound stone fruits are accentuated by precise textural acidity. The finish shows pure varietal fruit that is the hallmark of the Macedon Ranges, with a touch of wood spice.
