4.5 STARS | Winestate.
An elegant and finely textured style that will appeal to those who prefer their Chardonnay with a little less oak influence. The fragrant, flinty nose will captivate you while the elegant palate will leave you reaching for a second glass. Superb.
The winery writes: "Elegant and fine textured, the Church Road McDonald Series Chardonnay is a fragrant, complex wine with citrus and citrus blossom aroma to the fore. A light seasoning of toasty, smoky oak and a distinct element of struck flint/mineral aroma accompanied by a slightly slatey texture adds real depth and interest to the wine."
Church Road's McDonald Series is a celebration of pioneering winemaker Tom McDonald's entrepreneurial spirit. The wines are complex, textural and full of character.
