2011 Mount Mary Chardonnay

Yarra Valley, Victoria


Winemaker: Sam Middleton
Vineyard/Year: Mount Mary / 2011
Being poured at: Vue de Monde

Mount Mary is one of the great small wineries of Australia, established by Dr John Middleton in 1972. Production is tiny. Mount Mary is noted for both the character and high quality of its wines.

The 2011 Chardonnay fits handsomely into the line-up of Mount Mary Chardonnays. This wine is terrifically approachable now but will cellar beautifully for 10-15 years.

Tasting notes

There are typical aromas of oatmeal, honey and grapefruit combined with white peach and citrus, reflective of the cooler growing season. The palate is long and lean with a great balance between acid, phenolics and lees derived characters. Flavours of citrus and grapefruit are at the forefront with some soft cheese and pastry nuances adding complexity. The oak is present but plays a supporting role only.
