Montalto Pennon Hill Chardonnay 2013

Bloody good Chardy for $23!

This is Montalto's entry level and it certainly punches above its price point.

Homemade lemonade kicked things off. After warming up a little characters of yellow peach and nuttiness via cashews and hazelnuts became more prominent. There's some depth here and the fruit is still quite juicy and personable.

A lick of creaminess with a finish which is beautifully balanced and long. Oak adds depth but is not over the top.

Pass the roast chicken please.

Excellent.
