Other Reviews....
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. Drink by 2035.

Aromas of fresh cream, lemon and lime, as well as peach, pastry and toasted hazelnut. The palate is so zesty and intense, with driving acidity supporting ripe peach and lemon flavors that are melded together seamlessly. Long and polished. Grilled-hazelnut oak warms the gently pithy finish in stylish mode. Concentrated, long and complex. Their finest chardonnay of the modern era, this is among the Yarra’s first division. Drink over the next decade. Screw cap.

Screwcap closure on the wine I’m tasting.
The best Chardonnay wines, at least for me, combine flavour with lightness, and nothing too overt happening in the wine making 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? Drink 2021 - 2030+
