SKU: MOCTCHAR20
We continue our expensive obsession with Chardonnay, drinking and thinking about the best examples of this grape that we can find. Though we applaud the hyper-fine, flinty, and cordite laden styles that the best Australian wines exhibit, we also love the balanced intensity and power evident in the best of Burgundy. To this end, this wine is sourced from an exquisite vineyard pioneeringly planted in 1979 on the East Coast of Tasmania.

”Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild ferment in used French barriques, matured for 11 months on lees. The decision to bypass any new oak had a win-win outcome, reducing the cost price while focusing on the exceptional quality of the fruit. It has drive and complexity, with grapefruit leading a complex offer of layered fruit, creamy cashew and sustained length.”
