Franklin Tate 2019 Chardonnay (Margaret River)

This is a straightforward Chardonnay that doesn't offend but which shows little of Margaret River's prowess with this variety. The nose is reductive at first, with flinty, seashell aromas but also plenty of citrus and stone fruit. Things get more disjointed on the palate, where the angular acidity combined with the lemony fruit makes it feel astringent, with an odd, heavy ripeness too that sits in the opposite corner. Drink now. Christina Pickard
