Mount Mary Chardonnay 2018

JAMES HALLIDAY 98 POINTS!  

"Just when you think the Mount Mary wines can't get any better (at the point of release), they do. Multiple clones, hand-picked, crushed and destemmed, fermented French oak (30% new), matured for 11 months. Pale straw-green; extremely focused and wrapped in a skein of citrussy acidity, the palate of extreme length, its future guaranteed by its screwcap." - Wine Companion

"Plenty of struck match, lime, almond, and white flowers (including vanilla, of course). It’s full of flavour, albeit set to a somewhat tangy and grapefruity expression, with plenty of grip and grainy texture, lime rind, spice and some honey water sweetness. Finish is long and intense, with a tonic-like twang, and zesty appeal. Excellent." - Wine Front

"The 2018 Chardonnay has managed to keep its all-important natural acid line, remaining fresh and focused but also full flavoured from the warmer growing season conditions. The nose shows an array of complexities opening with toasty oak characters along with a smattering of flint/struck match. But swiftly pushing these secondary characteristics to the side is intense primary fruit of lime, seared pear and grapefruit. There are some honey and creme brulee aromas also present here. As is the case with the Triolet, it is an explosion of flavour on the palate. There are flavours of honey, ripe pear, grapefruit, toast and almond meal. There is a depth and richness to this wine that is held firmly in check by the strict acid line that runs through the core, adding freshness and length." - Mount Mary
