2020 Brave New Wine Magical Animal Chardonnay
Andries Mostert and Yoko Luscher-Mostert are some of the most fun people in the wine game. They are endlessly inventive, constantly experimenting with different combinations of grapes and production methods from their home in the far south-west of W.A.
The 2020 Magical Animal is about as traditional a Chardonnay as these guys will ever make. It is still lean, but it is aged in barrel and it has this absolutely pitch perfect struck match aroma that sends us gaga. It's still not exactly the ripe, fruity Margaret River style. But it is a classic, expertly made Chardonnay all the same. Cracking wine and cracking value.
