Montalto Pennon Hill Chardonnay 2016


Incredible value. Excellent Chardonnay. Montalto's entry level wine, it's classy and clearly not an after thought as some entry level wines can be. Montalto's Simon Black's meticulous nature wouldn't let that happen.

From the get-go, I just want in. Alluring with juicy citrus fruits. It starts with lemons and finishes with limes. Layers of fruit roll through at ease. White fleshed peach are met with bready and struck match characters. A minerally undertow clutches for attention with textural appeal from solids. Fine oak and a nuttiness complete a mightily impressive wine. What a bargain.

Drink now to five years.
