A blend of fruit from Padthaway (Limestone Coast, near the famous Coonawarra) and the home region of Clare Valley.
Taylors, Estate, Chardonnay, Padthaway, Clare Valley, 2020
Medium lemon gold hue. Opens with definitive Chardonnay statements of peach and soft tropical fruit flesh being well offset with some struck match/flint action. Richer lemon cream and egg-shell with a touch of grapefruit citrus finish painting the numbers. Approachable with a medium bodied intent. A little lingering yeasty, umami keeps things interesting after dad-bod pudgy mid-palate. Finishes with some juicy citrus-esque tones but stops fairly short. Good buying for those who want a fuller style.
Rating: 17/20 (88/100)
