Red Knot by Shingleback Chardonnay 2018

Produced by McLaren Vale’s Shingleback to be exclusive to Woolworth’s stores: Dan Murphy’s, BWS and through Shingleback’s online store. Mixed results for this label over the years. The 2016 was excellent while the 2017 failed to reach the heights.

Red Knot by Shingleback, Chardonnay, McLaren Vale, 2018

Sweet and creamy: cashew cream and latte notes, yellow stonefruit, thick lemon pith and even a little earthy mushroom cap. Sitting in the ripe zone, the fruit falls to tangy grapefruit with plenty of creamy oak support. Fine value for those looking for a richer experience.

RRP: $15
Alc: 13%
Rating: 16.25/20
