2016 Pennon Hill “Montalto” Chardonnay, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria.

Here is an example of what Australia is doing really well right now. If you shut your eyes you could just as easily be in the heart of white Burgundy. This wine shows aromas of vanilla, toast, lemon curd and hazelnuts. The palate is framed by high quality oak with a rich mouthfeel, precise acidity and a long almost saline finish. This is high end Chardonnay at it’s delicious best. Try with Halibut in a Sage and Brown Butter sauce. Drink now to 2030.
