A tail of two chardonnay

Chardonnay can vary in its quality like all other varieties yet it seems that the style varies more. The first wine is light and made in a more less is more style while the second wine looks towards the chardonnay’s of old.  
Tyrrell's Lost Block Chardonnay 2012 
In the beginning there is acidity in a light bodied style which makes me think of a lime splice in summer. It is a little confected but provides a nice summer refreshing drink with no real creamy nature.  
Alcohol: 12.5%

Lost Block Chardonnay
Big volume chardy! 
Lindeman’s Bin 65 Chardonnay 2013 
Simple or one dimensional is the only thing I have down for this wine. There is a note of peach with a sweet entry before it hits the mid-palate and disappears. The wine is nice enough especially at this price but that is about it.
