Montalto Hawkins Hill Chardonnay 2012
A little more golden in appearance than The Eleven Chardonnay 2012, this wine is more broader and giving.
Almonds, melon and stone fruit hit the spot with a polished minerality. A little more oak and juicer fruit in this wine enhance the depth. Beautifully balanced with a tremendously long finish. It's as though the fruit just floats on your tongue.
I enjoyed this wine more than the The Eleven though both are impressive expressions of Chardonnay.
What: Chardonnay (13.3% alc)
Where: Mornington Peninsula
