Larry Cherubino Ad Hoc 'Hen & Chicken'

Chardonnay, 2013

Australia White

Pemberton Western Australia 75cl

Another in the 'Ad Hoc' range from Larry Cherubino. An oaked Chardonnay, hen and chicken referring to the small and big berries that are used to make this wine. Ripe citrus on the nose with stone fruits and toasty oak, and a touch of struck match.
It's crisp and fresh on the palate with bright peach, nectarine and ripe lemon, some green apple and a hint of toasty oak too. It's an example of modern Australian Chardonnay, having good fruit, acidity, oak and some complexity in an elegant style.
It's a touch lighter than previous releases and that may be down to the youth of the wine we have gone from 11,12 and now 2013 in less than 12 months. It's tighter and more linear than before, and in my mind really needs a few months to flesh out, a victim of its own success!
