Handpicked Collection Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2013
If only they were a little more delicate. This is thick set with mealy oak and full, worked Chardonnay white peach flavours. That raw oak and yeast wall gives a wide brush of flavour, with great intensity, but also that sensation of being just too much to enjoy, complete with a dash of alcohol warmth.
An early noughties ‘more is better’ Chardonnay with no shortage of anything… but lesser because of it.
