Toolangi Vineyards Chardonnay 2014

I like what Toolangi do. Grow quality grapes and engage excellent local winemakers to craft the product and proudly declare it on the label. Less “contract wine making,” more “Duets II with Tony Bennett.”  This peachy little number made at Yering Station.

Toolangi Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, 2014

2014 Chardonnay11 Months in French Oak. Fresh fruit front with pineapple core (but not too sweet), followed by smooth cashew cream and vanilla richness over ripe peach stone fruit. That palate is rich and almost creamy on the first taste too. Comforting, like a cosy, warm woolen jumper on a cool spring evening. Just as you think it’ll fall away all flabby, crunchy pear-like crispness bites before layers of nutty corn, figs and peach topped with tart lemon butter and sprinkle of sandalwood spice. Leans into the full spectrum, but maintains equilibrium.

RRP: $28

Alc: 13.5%
