2014 Robinson Chardonnay, Moorooduc Estate, Victoria, Australia
Only 130 cases of this single vineyard Chardonnay were produced, highlighting the Robinson Vineyard's specific terroir. Pale lemon in colour with a complex yet delicate nose. White nectarine, lemon oil, white blossom, honeycomb and nutty complexity combine on the nose. A touch of earthy savouriness, and spice evolves as the wine opens up. On the palate, fresh lemon, anise and salty almonds vie with fresh crisp acidity, and a long citrusy finish. 12%
100% wild yeast fermentation in French oak barrels, 25% being new followed by 10 months in wood on its lees.
