Oxford Landing, ‘Sunlight’ Chardonnay 2023

(2024) Oxford Landing is one of Australia's most familiar brand names, though the 'Sunlight' range is new. Created "with an eye towards healthier, more environmentally conscious wine consumption," this has 40% less alcohol and calories than the original Oxford Landing Chardonnay. Aromatically it is fairly subdued, but there's a little custard apple and pear, hinting at a peachier ripeness. There's a bit of sweetness on the palate and, it has to be said, a rather dilute flavour. That intial sweetness does bump into some limey acidity to leave this dry-ish, quite flavourful, and not bad - if lower alcohol and calories are your priority. Watch the video for more information.
