2013 Snake + Herring Tough Love Chardonnay

imageIncorporates fruit from both the Margaret River and Porongurup areas of Western Australia. Perhaps slightly more generous than the previous vintage.

Light funk on the nose. Nectarine, lime and spiced pears are supported by a restrained veneer of oak. Hints of wheat germ and nuts. Pristine and long on the palate. Flows evenly and swiftly with integrated acidity and satisfying friction providing form and interest. Linear but not at all underdone. Polished yet not buffed to a shine. I’m tempted to just call it modern. Excellent value to boot. 91
