Grapes are sourced from the ultra-cool climate Cope William vineyard. So not surprisingly the wine is showing little development. Pale with a hint of reduction on the nose accompanied by nutty and saline aromatics. Fresh, racy palate with lemons and lime flavours. Light creeping into medium bodied palate. Juicy wine made in a Chablis style. Well priced.
Wombat Forest Chardonnay 2015, Macedon Ranges, 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.
