Kooyong Clonale Chardonnay 2020


The grapes for this delicious Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay come from the estate’s own vineyards at Tuerong and Balnarring. They were whole-bunch pressed to French barriques (a small percentage of which were new), where fermentation was with wild yeasts. Then a little less than a year on lees, before bottling with minimal filtration and no fining. The colour is a lovely pale yellow. Florals, nuts, stonefruits, a hint of citrus and spices on the nose with a flick of oak behind it, which is well
integrated. Seamless, creamy texture, good acidity and excellent length. Delicious now, for sure, but over the next five years might just go up a gear or two.
