Musk Lane, Faraday Vineyard Chardonnay 2021, Macedon/Bendigo Victoria.

by | Mar 5, 2023

Different approach here from their Malmsbury Chardonnay. 24% new oak and only partial MLF due to a warmer site presumably. So you still get the effects of some good French oak and buttery creamy notes but the palate has a better acid balance and as a result a longer finish. Good wine.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
