Scotchmans Hill Sutton Vineyard Cornelius Chardonnay 2016, Geelong, Vic

by | May 12, 2022

Made from the P58 clone, the wine has been cellared before release and it benefits from this time in the cellar. Lovely golden colour. Opulent aromas of toast, honey, laced with lemon zest and peaches. Intense, powerful palate that displays bags of ripe stone fruit flavours. Well balanced and incredibly long on the finish. Delicious.

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.
