Onannon Tuerong Single Site Chardonnay - Mornington Peninsula - 2020Regular price $51.00
The wine comprises Chardonnay clone 95. The handpicked fruit was pressed as whole bunches before fermentation with full solids in three French oak barrels, one of which was new. The lees were stirred a few months after primary fermentation had finished. The wine underwent full malolactic conversion. Left unsulphured on gross lees till November then racked, bentonite-fined and filtered.
"It’s a ripper Chardonnay. Absolute top drawer. The length of it, wow. It tastes of white peach and nectarine, shells and lactose, hay and sweet cedar. But the tension here, the impression of power and the sheer length; this is quality with a hum to it. File this one under Excellent."
