Polperro Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2017
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.
Region: Mornington Peninsula
