2016 Gisborne Peak Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
89

A lightly oaked earlier drinking Chardonnay that sourced from the Mawarra Vineyard, it’s a moderate 12.2 % alcohol and showcases the pristine fruit of the Macedon Ranges.

The nose gives nectarine that’s backed by understated fig and a touch of citrus zest, the palate has good texture with ample acidity to carry the wines fuller stone fruits. There is an almond meal richness that adds another layer on the mid palate before the finish sees a return of nectarine with a honeyed edge and driving citrus acidity.

A wine to be enjoyed over the short to medium term.
