Montalto Estate Chardonnay 2010

I am a fan of Chardonnay made with right balance of oak and fruit. This wine falls into that category for me.

Coming from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, this Estate Chardonnay is blended from three vineyards.

A good whiff of buttered toast, nuttiness, and cedary vanilla oak got the juices flowing.

The first sip coated the palate beautifully and the flavours which flowed from the nose were generous. That distinct nutty flavour had me hooked. Fleshy peach characters added to the mix well too. Oak was in check and not obtrusive. The density of the palate was also something which had me sitting up taking notice.

An all round impressive wine.

Roast Chicken and Chardonnay are great friends, so why not pair them up with this for a great match. That's what I did!
