92pointsHoward Park 2017 Miamup Chardonnay (Margaret River)

From a cooler, southern subregion of Margaret River (Miamup), this vintage of Howard Park's Chard is punchy and pretty, offering heady aromas of kumquats and nectarines, with saline, mineral notes and gentle but ever-present toasty, vanillin oak notes. The easygoing palate is slippery and saline, with lovely fruit intensity and crystalline acidity. Again the oak shows but doesn't overwhelm. This has hit its stride now, and offers an affordable intro to the famed Chardonnays of Australia's west. Christina Pickard
