Appealing nose, on the one side driven by struck match but then it shows a saline, minerally side with whiffs of stone fruits. In a word, complex. Zesty concentrated palate with peach and nutty flavours. A tight, firm middle palate leads to a slightly warm but satisfying long finish. Very enjoyable wine and well priced considering the quality.
Moorooduc Estate Chardonnay 2019, Mornington Peninsula, 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.
