The 2019 vintage, at 98 points, earned Halliday’s top Chardonnay score ever. And this scintillating 2020 beats it!

Suckling (Nick Stock) 99:

This really asserts itself at the top echelon of chardonnay, in a context that extends far beyond the shores of the tiny island state of Tasmania. Already in such a great place, with aromas of white peach, lemon, lemon curd and very precisely curated sulphides adding interest. There’s wet chalk, lemon peel and gentle hazelnutty oak in play as well. The palate has seamless, layered and fresh citrus and peach flavors, as well as a stream of pithy grapefruit and peach on offer. Acidity holds the finish long and true. This is one of the most elegant vintages of this wine, reminiscent of the 2014. Oak chimes in so subtly on the finish. Drink or hold.

He's right. This is a breathtaking Chardonnay by ANY standards…and would put a lot of far more expensive grand cru Burgundies and California cults to shame.
