Miles From Nowhere Chardonnay, Margaret River 2014 $19
A light, very gently-wooded chardonnay, which lets the fruit do the talking. The aromas are restrained, with vanilla and baked lemon pudding notes, while the taste is clean and straightforward, refreshing and not too complicated, finishing with a perfectly acceptable grip. (Screw-cap; 13.1 per cent alcohol.) Score: 88 ★★★½ – view on huonhooke.com
