“This makes an impression” 92 Points | The Wine Front – 2020 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay

I haven’t read the press notes on this wine but 2020 in the Adelaide Hills was an interesting time, no doubt. There’s plenty of fruit power here. And texture. And form. It feels powerful and well honed and, indeed, has a quartz-like aspect to it. Yellow peach, grapefruit, nectarine, woodsmoke and cedar characters shoot convincingly through. Candied citrus too. There’s a smoky element to the aftertaste but fruit notes crush right through it. This is dry, this is taut, this makes an impression. When it relaxes it could yet score higher.
