    Other Reviews....
    Invariably interesting style of Chardonnay from LL. It’s a bit Yarra v Jura v Chablis, but for all that, very much its own thing. Without wanting to typecast, this is more a Mike Bennie style of Chardonnay than a Campbell Mattinson one.

    Subdued fruit, into lemon rind, citrus, green apple, aniseed, with nutty saline character. It’s savoury, a little kombucha or yoghourt sourness, intense acidity, fine chalk dust texture, and a long perfumed/sour-edged finish. It’s engaging and very good, though likely to polarise.
