Victory Point Chardonnay 2019


This was a cooler vintage in Margaret River and this excellent chardonnay is a great example of some of the top-notch wines emerging. It’s all wild barrel fermented with battonage but no malolactic fermentation. The aim appears to have been to keep it tight and tense with that crisp minerality coming through. A little white fruit and subtle understated grapefruit with a chalky minerality. The oak has been well managed with a little less than 40% new oak working seamlessly with the older components. One of the best yet from Victory Point.
