Stoniers Chardonnay 2017

A really good Chardonnay from Victoria's Mornington Peninsula. The winemaker is Mike Symons and he has done a great job in crafting a very user friendly Chardonnay that is well integrated and balanced and moreish. He has given it the treatment it deserves with part malo and good French oak and the grapes are from an excellent vintage there. A glorious pale yellow reflects a youthfulness and vibrancy. The citrus lemons resonate from the aromas, bright upfront, not OTT though. It does not polarise in any way even though the French oak and fullsome fruit are both there. Balance and good structure are the key words here. You get the citrus lemon, light tropical fruits and honeydew melon on the nose and then a medium to long creamy smooth finish. A delcious moreish wine as I said. Very easy drinking and excellent drinking at that. I really enjoyed drinking this as you can tell.
