2012 Montalto Hawkins Hill Vineyard Chardonnay


Sweeter, brasher and punchier than The Eleven Vineyard Chardonnay. Lees is still a player but it’s dialled back giving the wine great clarity and more of a sense of definition.

White peach and melon, nectarine, honeysuckle and citrus. Has a sense of purpose and mineral derived linearity. The finish is more savoury, contributing a smoked almond character. Richness in harness. 93
