Kooyong 'Clonale' Mornington Peninsula

Chardonnay, 2017

Australia White

Mornington Peninsula 75cl

The 2017 Kooyong Clonale is a blend of Chardonnay from our Tuerong and Balnarring vineyards. The grapes are gently whole-bunch pressed directly into French oak barriques (8% new), where fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts. Following fermentation, the wine is aged on lees (without battonage) for 10 months. It is bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
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 and some sulphide character. Crisp and pure and already really delicious. Drink over the next 3-4 years.
