Chardonnay - Pooley Cooinda Vale Chardonnay
Winery : Pooley Wines
Tasmanian chardonnays have such intense fruit that a teensy bit of bottle age, to add some silk and roundness is always welcome. Pooley's fabulous 2016 Cooinda Vale Chardonnay is drinking very well at the moment.
Michele's notes: Beautiful perfume from classy fruit and superb oak. It's a bit edgy but there are florals too, with stone fruit. Creamy complexity in the mouth, toasty nuts at the end and the acid well tucked in. Modest alcohol, suggesting a happy life in the cellar, to be pulled out at intervals over the next five years.
