2021 Patrick Sullivan Baw Baw Shire Chardonnay - GippslandRegular price $60.00
This is why I like Gippsland Wines, they are just so glorious to drink.
The 2021 Patrick Sullivan Baw Baw Chardonnay is no exception, aromas of nectarines, almonds and gun flint on the nose with a bigger style of Chardonnay waiting to envelope you. It's rich and unapologetic but perfectly balanced showing dancing couples of grapefruit and unripe nectairines softened by the creamy impact of malo.
Could drink this for days.
"Twenty year old vines of I10v1 clone chardonnay, one that usually produces fuller flavoured chardonnay, but here grown on a south facing site.
Crackles along with freshness and energy, lemon-lime, green apple, oatmeal and light, saline characters. Beautiful texture, supple and yet clean and crisp at the same time. Has this mouth-watering freshness and yet quiet richness, and structure is a word to be thrown into the mix here. Seriously good, and importantly, outrageously delicious."
