Shadowfax Gippsland Chardonnay 2008

It’s a single vineyard wine (reading from the back label) “grown at Tambo in East Gippsland”. Interestingly, the label also describes the wine as “distinctively coastal in style” – which is a phrase I’ve heard one or two winemakers use, but I’ve never before seen in print (I don’t think). I wonder what “distinctively coastal in style” means to the consumer? I can’t say it means a great deal to me.
