Passing Clouds

Passing Clouds Estate Chardonnay 2022, Macedon Ranges, Vic

by | Nov 12, 2023

Elegant, restrained wine with citrus and minerally, slightly saline driven aromas, accompanied by some oak-derived struck-match complexity. The palate is where you see the cool climate shine brightly with fresh acid driven citrus and stone fruit flavours yet laced with a savoury oak middle palate on a medium bodied framework. This wine is delicious to drink now and will age well into the future.

Ratings Key:

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.
