Toolangi Pauls Lane Chardonnay 2012
Made by Dave Bicknell at Oakridge, the fruit comes from the Dixon's Creek vineyard. French oak was used for eleven months.
A seamless wine which encapsulates the beauty of the Yarra Valley. The fruit is alive yet walks with humility. Gently spiced oak, fresh fig, nectarine and yellow fleshed peach plus well poised acid stride hand in hand with all components delivering a wine which is an absolute pleasure to drink. Gentle creaminess from the oak caresses the mouth to finish for what almost seems a prolonged and polite farewell. Big love here.
Chardonnay fans will be in heaven here.
Will cellar long term but good to go now.
Region: Yarra Valley
