2012 Moorooduc Estate Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
93

At a recent tasting i got the chance to continue my enjoyment of Chardonnay from Moorooduc Estate in the Mornington Peninsula. These wines rarely disappoint, they are approachable young and mature magnificently.

The 12’ is a light yellow in colour with a flinty nose that gives nectarine and a touch of wood spice. The palate has layers, the foundation is citrus acidity with a sheath of spicy sweetness from french oak, and a fullness that comes from richer stone fruits. Towards the finish there is and a kick of sour edged nectarine against creamy lees characters that gives great texture. Will age well over the medium term.
