Shaw & Smith Chardonnay 2010
The wine starts out with a little grilled nuts with a spine of grapefruit and white nectarine providing a zippiness. You will have to wait a while for the flavours of figs rolled in spice to build. It is like your grandma trying to blow up an air mattress as you should come back the next day to see progress. On day one I was looking for length and balance and that is what I got in spades. Even on day one the oak was in the background so I can safely say that the power of the fruit is brilliant.
Drink: 2016 - 2024
