Wine

Moonambel Chardonnay, Dalwhinnie, 75cl

£26.95

Located near the tiny village of Moonambel in the heart of the Pyrenees region of Western Victoria, Dalwhinnie specialise in Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. After 25 years of growing grapes, the 18 hectare vineyard is now fully mature. At 595 metres above sea-level Dalwhinnie is the highest and most remote of the Pyrenees district vineyards. Surrounded and sheltered by the highest range, located in a naturally undulating trough which falls away from the hills, forming an amphitheatre nestled into the ranges. Ownership of Dalwhinnie has remained within one family. In 1972 the remote property was purchased. The founder, Ballarat architect Ewan Jones, established the vineyard in 1976. His eldest son David, has managed it since 1983 and, with his wife, Jenny, has owned it since 1994.

Wonderful creamy toasted hazelnut aromas, with light vanilla pod and fine woody notes. The palate is soft and rounded with some apply crispness, with plenty of toasty oak which goes on and on. It has a tight minerality with almost Riesling like acidity.

  Expert reviews

2010 Vintage: " ... displays delicate white peach, under-ripe pineapple, grapefruit and citrus zest notes with hints of toast, cream and almonds. Medium-bodied, crisp and with great concentration on the plate, it finishes long and yeasty / creamy. Though approachable now, it's built to age and should cellar to 2017+. 92+ points." Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, The Wine Advocate Issue 201, 30th June 2012
