Mount Macleod Chardonnay

Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2017

Gippsland, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14%
Mount Macleod is the second label of the Burgundian-inspired (and boutique-scaled) Caledonia Australis who, in their fairly short lifespan, have carved a reputation amongst the cognoscenti as a fine source of excellent value, aromatically complex and elegant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Given the quality and value Mount Macleod offer, their wines remain criminally under-exposed.

Fermented naturally, the 2017 Mount Macleod Chardonnay was then raised on lees for 20 months - in old wooden barrels that have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Chardonnay. Pure, cool-climate aromas in the ripe citrus spectrum; an elegant, a lovely textural mid-palate with excellent persistence, this is a lively, as well as fleshy Gippsland Chardonnay that offers sensational value for money.
