Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2016
Fermented naturally, the 2016 Chardonnay was raised on its lees for 20 months in old wooden barrels (that have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Chardonnay). Pure, cool-climate aromas in the ripe citrus spectrum; an elegant, a lovely textural mid-palate with excellent persistence-this is a lively, as well as fleshy Gippsland Chardonnay that offers sensational value for money. Bright straw colour with a slight green tinge. Showing a little more ripeness than the last two vintages, the nose is of ripe stone fruit, honey and citrus. The palate is mouth-filling with more flavours of grilled nuts and broken biscuits. The texture is creamy with fresh acidity balancing out the finish.
