Mayer Bloody Hill Villages Coldstream Chardonnay 2021Regular price $32.00
Whole bunch pressed and fermented in neutral oak, citrus, and green melon on the nose, juicy and ripe on the palate with nectarine and Lychee fruit, nice texture and a bit of phenolic grip add to the character of the wine. great persistence on the finish.
"Rivar Ferguson-Mayer at the helm with fruit coming from the Yarra floor. Curious harvest season with a niggling rain period making things stop start a bit. Anyways, this is pleasing gear. Perfume kicks off with oatmeal and marzipan scents, some green apple, ripe lime and green pear too. Sloshy, pear and apple juice to taste, licks of nougat, cinnamon spice, some brioche and a fresh, limey finish. Lots of good energy here, plus interest and general sense of quality, whatever that might mean. It’s a very good wine."
