Toolangi Estate Pauls Lane Chardonnay 2018 is flinty, powerful of fruit and glorious through the finish. Grown on 23 year old vines from a single site vineyard in Dixons Creek in the Yarra Valley of low cropped and hand-harvested of I1OV3 clone grapes on D block rows 35 -55.
The nose is spicy, with faintly floral aromas of stone fruit, grapefruit, lime juice and coriander backed by matchstick-like oak and a hint of mineral. The palate is round and creamy, smooth and voluptuous, with a gentle mouth-filling core of flavour and nougat-like complexity finishing with a hint of butter, gentle lemony acids and a faint smokiness.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 6.
