2015 Hanging Rock The Jim Jim Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

Chardonnay is a variety that showcases the quality of site, and the quality of winemaker. The Jim Jim Chardonnay is an exemplar of Macedon Ranges Chardonnay with a flinty and mineral core from the low yielding, cold site of Hanging Rock and the winemaker derived richness through time on lees and careful barrel selection.

A pale yellow in the glass there is attractive wood spice and flint notes on the nose with white peach and understated melon. Time on lees and some malolactic fermentation come out on the palate and provide a richness of cashew that’s interjected by spice, powdery citrus and stone fruits with a buttery edge. This is a deeply enjoyable Chardonnay.

Get in quick there are only 120 dozen bottles of this wine made.
