Millton Opou Vineyard Chardonnay 2011
Winery/Brand: Millton Wines
A beautiful nutty complexity on the nose which comes from oxidative handling in the cellar, the palate is rich and full with roasted almonds and hazelnuts to the fore and ripe, creamy stonefruit. The texture is fine with super well-integrated fruit tannins, balanced with crisp acidity. This is a wine with a long future ahead of it.
Notes from the Winemaker: I think this wine has a ‘completeness’. It is well gathered and has harmony across the overall taste. There is an air of antiquity in this style. The bush honey and plush marzipan characters reflect ripe grapes from clay soils.
