Kooyong 'Clonale' Mornington Peninsula

The 2016 Kooyong Clonale is a blend of Chardonnay from the Kooyong and Ballewindi vineyards. The parcels in this wine represent 9.5 hectares.
The fruit is whole bunch pressed and barrel fermented in French oak (12% new) without yeast inoculation. The wine was aged sur lie for 10 months prior to bottling
It reminds me of a top quality Chablis in it's style and minerality and is really quite superb.
Limey with lemon, a hint of peach and struck match on the nose with a quartz minerality.
Flinty with lime citrus and stone fruit, has a gentle creaminess mostly from the extended lees aging. Crisp and pure and already really delicious. Has a lovely mouthwatering finish. Drink over the next 3-4 years. Has good ripeness, but still crisp and fresh with lovely acidity.
