Year: 2018 Appellation: Mornington Penninsula Region: Victoria Country: Australia Style: Dry
Organic and biodynamic practices on this vineyard, the warmest of Polperro's sites, has produced a generous wine showing lovely creaminess over bedrock minerality. Unusually for Aussie chardonnays this wine undergoes full malolactic, where harsher Granny Smith acid is softened into lactic acid. But the firm acid and wet pebble base keep everything in check.
"Golden yellow colour – rich. Vanilla custard, nougat, spicy oak and lemon essence. Never judge a book. Supple and fruited palate. Ethereal in its length and mineral glide. Love its trajectory"94 POINTS – The Real Review
