This is a multi-faceted wine with a rich bouquet of toasted nuts, butter, vanilla and caramel nuances. It’s rich and full in the mouth, with satisfying weight and depth, complexity and detail, yet remains light on its feet.

Classic Mornington Chardonnay, combining the roundedness of fleshy white peach and butterscotch with the fresh drive of lemon and grapefruit, finishing balanced, clean and long.

Looking fresh in the glass with a greenish tinge, the nose has complexity and composure, peach and nougat, oak spices and lemon custard. The palate’s bright, assertive and convincing; flavours follow aromas through the lemon and peach spectrum, with spiced, honeyed complexity. Good balance too.

There is no doubting that the Mornington Peninsula is fast becoming one of the prime regions in Australia for Chardonnay production. TMBT is in the Premier League, as this terrific, turbo-charged Chardonnay demonstrates. With orange blossom and wild honey on the nose and silkiness and cultured oak on the palate, this is a decadent Chardonnay just starting out on a five year crusade to entrance your senses.

Light straw-green; a complex chardonnay with layered fruit flavours including some creamy cashew nuances, the oak balance impeccable. In some ways, middle ground between McCutcheon and Wallis. Drink 2016.
