Tonic Chardonnay 2019
Always a wine of intrigue and distinct personality. Off kilter, you might say. Very nutty, saline style, a bit of ginger, butter menthol, grapefruit and lemon rind. It’s bright and tangy, intense acid cut, yet soft and nutty, like sake in a way, with toffee, citrus and biscuits, and a lively finish offering preserved lemon and citrus. Different, but good different. Rated 92 points. Drink 2020-2023+. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
