The 2019 Chardonnay is defined by its finesse and purity and, at this point in time, suggests nothing of the warmer vintage. Aromatically it is a little closed at first but opens up and fully expresses itself with time in the glass. The nose shows some preserved lemon, pear, white peach, cashew nuts and subtle toasty oak complexities. The palate is only medium-bodied but exhibits exceptional length of flavour and persistence. There are primary fruit flavours of pear, melon and grapefruit paired with savoury spice undertones, nuts and buttered toast. There is already an appealing balance to this wine with phenolics, acidity, primary fruit and secondary complexity all neatly pieced together. –

Sam Middleton, Mount Mary

"The best Chardonnay wines, at least for me, combine flavour with lightness, and nothing too overt happening in the winemaking process, and if this criteria is important to others too, then this release romps it home. There’s a flicker of struck match, peach and citrus, with a subtle overlay of vanilla and spiced oak. It’s glossy, but tight and chalky too, almond paste and crunch of limey acidity, with a touch of savoury complexity. It’s almost juicy in its delivery of flavour, but never steps over the line. The finish is very long, all nougat and ripe Chardonnay flavour, and leaves you wanting more. What more could you want?"

"There must be some magic dust landing on Mount Mary or rather, its Chardonnay site. Latterly, this has just been rockin' it. No different this year: a pristine, refined and ultra-elegant wine. A harmonious offering of citrus and light creamy leesy flavours, spice and vanilla-pod oak. The succulence via acidity ensures it lingers long. I got goosebumps tasting this."
