Gaffy & Neal Wines Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay

Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2023

A dominant green tinge with straw background augurs well for significant ageing. Citrus fruits of Meyer lemon grapefruit and tangelo peel add to the white nectarine that’s present.

A touch of brioche, meal and cashew; as the wine opens – fennel frond, peat and charcuterie another subtle layer. The palate is fine, elegant and creamy; white peach and ruby grapefruit in full throttle humming long on the palate.

A textural wine with considerable depth that ends with a mineral saline like tang flourish keeping the wine clean, full and crisp. My personal favourite of our first three vintages.

This wine will live for a good 10 – 20 years.
