Showing surprising complexity and richness for a Chardonnay in its price range, the 2021 vintage (5*) was "formerly known as the John Forrest Collection Chardonnay". Pale gold, it is sturdy and savoury, with concentrated, ripe stonefruit flavours, slightly buttery notes, balanced acidity and loads of personality. Drink now or cellar. Fine value.
