Paul Mas 2008 Chardonnay

I challenge anyone to name a better-value chardonnay than this little ripper from the Languedoc region of southern France. A glorious drink-now style from the same folks who produce Arrogant Frog, it follows an equally impressive 07 release. There's plenty of peachy/tropical fruit flavour here, but also some surprising elegance and nice acid on the finish. I'd happily drink a bottle of this - and I can't say that about many $8.99 wines. Exclusively from Dan Murphy.
