The nose display struck match sulphide notes and youthful cool climate lemon curd aromas. Palate is well balanced with some lemony acidity and medium bodied. Attractive flavour profile of honey, peach, apricots and well integrated butter/creaminess from the malolactic fermentation. Well made Chardonnay
Paringa Estate The Paringa 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.
