Polperro Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2017

Crazy good! A blend of two vineyards, it's a generous wine yet it's quite tempered at the same time - clearly proud of the skin it's in. Top stuff.

Currently, the vineyard is going through a process to convert over to organic. The work in the winery sees no enzymes or sulphur used except for when the barrel is put to sleep for 12 months and a minor addition of sulphur is slipped in. Clearly, Sam Coverdale wants the vineyard and the fruit to speak for themselves.

Whiffs of struck match early. White peach, grapefruit and lemon juice are fleshy and generous filling the mouth with ease. Deft touches of caramel before a fine minerally sits back but makes its presence felt. Finishing long, satisfying is the feeling washing over you as you recline and indulge.

Drink now to six years.
