Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2022

Stylish and translucently clear, this vivacious young chardonnay flaunts the quality of its pristine fruit. Scented with white peach, nougat and grapefruit backed by creamy, nutty oak with notes of smoke and matchstick, it’s lifted by a note of spice and a whiff of lemon blossom.

It’s smooth and fluffy, with a beautifully weighted core of flavoured underpinned by a lick of slate and wrapped in a mouthwatering acidity. Artfully balanced, but fruit-focused.

Merricks North Chardonnay 2022

Sumptuous, complex and deeply layered, with an explosive, unctuous core of fruit that should be the envy of most modern Australian chardonnay.

A wild, heady bouquet of stonefruit, grapefruit, lemon blossom and creamy, nutty oak precedes a luscious, mouthfilling palate that effortlessly moves smooth and penetrative over a fine, powdery backbone, finishing dry and pithy. Remarkably complete, long and measured, it promises a long and rewarding cellaring future.
