2017 Thorn-Clarke Mt Crawford Chardonnay - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"Sourced from Eden Valley, the 2017 Mount Crawford Chardonnay includes 25% barrel-fermented and aged wine, while the rest is done in tank. It's a juicy, medium-bodied Chardonnay, fruit-focused, with pineapple, pear and citrus flavors. Not overly rich or broad, it fits neatly within the current paradigm of balanced Aussie Chardonnay. At the price, it can compete with anything from anywhere in the world. - Joe Czerwinski"
