Wine of the Month: Toolangi Estate Chardonnay 2010
There is so many good Chardonnays to be enjoyed at the moment, it is hard to find a favourite. Particularly around the $30 – $40 price point.
This wine is for lovers of Chardonnays in the rich cream profile. Its lushness is overlayed fresh peach and nut aromas, with the addition of zesty lemon detail on the palate and a drop of vanilla for a touch of luxury. Fermentation in large format oak followed by 10 months in French oak has given the texture in the mouth polish and silk while remaining fresh, elegant and finely balanced. A style that is as timelessly classic as it is right up to date.
