Bird On A Wire Chardonnay 2017

Made by Caroline Mooney, the wine was whole bunch pressed to tank, settled and then transferred to oak barrels to allow wild fermentation. 30% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation to promote richness and depth. Minimal, yet evocative packaging.

Bird On A Wire, Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, 2017


Yellow stonefruit, melon flesh, grapefruit and lemon pith/flesh, jasmine florals and a saline briny undertone. Pleasant creamy notes from the MLF and light cracker biscuit add to the depth. Just medium bodied. Spicy oak influences with an elegant, creamy mid palate giving way to puckering acidity, extending the dry, textural finish. Balanced and classy.

RRP: $45
Alc: 13.1%
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
