2016 Wil­low Creek Vine­yard Morn­ing­ton Penin­sula Chardon­nay

Halliday - - 100 New Notes -

Hand-picked clones I10V1, 95 and 96, whole­bunch pressed, wild-fer­mented in French bar­riques (20% new), ma­tured for 10 months. Now this is a pretty snappy chardon­nay, pul­sat­ing with life, yet never get­ting in your face, happy to let you come to your own de­ci­sions. It’s hard to split the flavours, the light of the in­di­vid­ual com­po­nents shad­ing each other out in the most har­mo­nious way, and all from the very cen­tre of the chardon­nay hymn book.13% alc.
