Murdoch Hill is a producer that should be on your radar, with young winemaker Michael Downer one of the real up-and-coming talents in the country. This Chardonnay might not have the pizzaz and funk of his 'Artisan' releases, it is however a perfect example of the excellent value Chardonnay that can be produced from the Hills. It comes from two different vineyards in the Adelaide Hills sub-regions of Lobethal and Piccadilly Valley, providing complexity, balance and depth to the final product. The 2016 is light and fresh feeling with just enough texture from barrel to keep things interesting. It's not super complex or thought-provoking but it's certainly going to hit the spot when you want quality Chardonnay that's nifty value.

What it Tastes Like

Citrus and white stonefruit are the main themes here. It's built around a core of pristine acidity, flavour draped over a line of crackling acid. There's a little richness from the barrel work but big ticket item is freshness. Geez it's good. No brainer for Chardonnay fans of many kinds.
