Moorilla, Muse , Chardonnay, Tasmania, 2019


Pale lemon in colour. Bright aromatics: fruit driven at first with crisp peach, green melon, citrus pith and a suggestion of barley sugar before plenty of savoury ground meal, hessian and smoky barrel work with briny hint.  Feels like a wine on the cusp of many things yet not quite extending deep into any particular territory. A warm year, the fruit feels broad, yet a little flat and the acidity subdued as the mid palate narrows into focus. A dry, chalky grippy finish falls shorter than expected, yet the overall package is sound.

Alc: 13.3%
