Citrus and nectarine stone fruit nose with vanillan oak. Whole bunch, barrel fermented with wild yeast produces a rich full bodied powerful palate. Well integrated oak. Finish is long and buttery.
Attwoods Old Hog Chardonnay 2018, Geelong, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
