Montalto The Eleven Chardonnay 2016



I don't dance, but I do when Montalto wines come through the door. Or perhaps it looks like I'm dancing albeit my knees giving way. Always measured and considered with bucket loads of interest, this release of The Eleven is no different.

Green apple, homemade lemonade, barley sugar plus white fleshed stonefruit jostle for your attention. Texture is the game winemaker Simon Black plays hard and here it is again. The mouth is coated generously yet softly. There's an energy that's hard to escape courtesy of lemony deliciousness and a fine trail of grapefruit. Subtle matchstick notes sit in the background happy to play a supporting role. Dainty gingerbread spice laps at your feet sitting long and playfully almost waiting for you to succumb and dive back in. And that I will.

Drink now to a decade+
