Red Knot by Shingleback, Chardonnay, McLaren Vale, 2019
Fuller perfume for the Red Knot: with nutty cashew over lemon skin, lemon curd, hints of peach, grilled pineapple and considered oak treatment. Thankfully not as rich on the palate, the wine retains a good mineral McLaren Vale spine and bright, citrusy acid edges with a medium-minus length to the finish and last wave of phenolic grip. Sure it sits well into the ‘value’ end of the price bracket but you could do worse.
