- VIC - Mornington Peninsula
Very spiffy chardonnay from Mornington Peninsula icon Moorooduc Estate.
Lovely combination of flavours here. Pears, sweet and savoury. Nectarines. Oak spice. A slip of lactose. Maybe even some brine. Green-ish acids through the finish, but in a pleasing way. Super from go to whoa. Rating 94 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front(DEC/2012)
A tightly wound and pure-fruited wine, showing pear and nectarine, lots of seductive spices and a lick of toasty oak; the palate is sweet-fruited and generous, silky and layered, with a fine backbone of acidity and a long, savoury and mealy conclusion. Rating 94 - Drink by 2016 - Ben Edwards, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2012)
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale golden in colour
This wine shows tangy lemon pith and white floral aromatics with some flinty, chalky notes.
Linear and bright on the palate, with minerally notes, green apple and lemon barley flavours. The wine finishes long with fresh crisp acidity.
A terrific food wine and very versatile– try with pan-fried garfish and garlic roasted potatoes.
