Allevare Gippsland Chardonnay 2022
$ 58.00 incl. GST
From 40 year old vines on Xavier Goodridge’s Maffra site, barrel fermented and raised entirely in seasoned oak, with full malo. Richer and with flesh, though this feels more derived of site rather than winemaking influence (oak/bâtonnage), reminiscent in many ways of Mâcon. Attractively textured, a broad spectrum of fruit flavours here of grilled peach, melon, waxy apple, nectarine and cashew. A leesy mealiness rounds out the finish, a sophistication here.
