85pointsCool Woods 2018 Chardonnay (South Australia)

It's hard to find much varietal character in this Chardonnay, not to mention any expression of place. There's some stalky reduction on the nose, but underneath is intensely ripe melon and tropical fruit with an odd copper penny and spice nuance. The palate also has its quirks and is highly fruity, with acidity that feels forced amid a slippery texture. Christina Pickard
