Twin Valleys Single Site Reserve Chardonnay 2023


The label says much of what is needed to locate this wine in Victoria’s High Country – in the lower King Valley specifically. From there it’s about bringing to the glass a quite high-powered, richer style of Chardonnay, more in the honeydew melon to pineapple flavour spectrum, with a solid spine and background oak – but not overwhelmed – and an undercurrent of citrus in a tangelo kind of way rather than yellow or green fruit, balanced cleverly with a light creaminess in the palate, a cute little suggestion of toffee to boot. A fair bit going on within a traditional styling jacket.
