The Craftsman range exclusive to Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores here in Australia have this unique line which tells it just like it is. Or at least, how they want it to be, such as Rich & Smooth or Zesty & Crisp.
Craftsman, Smooth & Buttery, Chardonnay,McLaren Vale, 2017
Soft waxy gold colour, luckily it hasn’t been pushed over the edge in the colour stakes. Buttery indeed on the nose before a caricature grapefruit, ripe peach and lemon curd. A hesitant taste finds it over seasoned with oak attempting to offset stripped back wan lemon/lime citrus and peachy sweet stone fruit afterthoughts.
