2009 McCutcheon Vineyard Chardonnay Reviews

An elegant chardonnay. Restrained but ultra-complex bouquet of toasted-nut, honey and citrus-flower aromas. A rich, yet finely textured and restrained palate with roundness and viscosity.

An elegant detailed chardonnay, with finesse as well as power. Restrained but ultra-complex bouquet of toasted nut, honey and citrus-flower aromas, quite Burgundy-like. The palate is rich, yet finely textured and restrained with just enough roundness and viscosity. Outstanding. Now to five years.

A rich and complex chardonnay that drives straight into ripe peachy territory, with some buttery complexity, honey, grilled hazelnuts and spice. The palate’s flavoursome and richly textured with a swathe of peach and melon; hints of grapefruit too. Finishes round, full and glossy.

Bright quartz-green; the bouquet is more fragrant than the Estate, the white peach fruit line more precise and defined, although still with complexity, oak a bystander in a wine with great length. Drink to 2018.
