Montalto Pennon Hill Chardonnay 2013

From the Montalto website: "The name Pennon Hill comes from the south facing slope on our home vineyard in Red Hill South. The wines are Mornington Peninsula regional blends and we’re aiming for bright, fresh wines with juicy, textured fruit flavours."

Wheaty, mealy, creamy with stonefruit singing here. Touch tangier than the Montalto Chardonnay (above), displaying those characters sought in the Pennon Hill range. Stonefruit, pear, a bit of toasty oak and even a little grip moving towards the back palate.

Good length here too, not to the same degree of intensity, freshness and delicious to boot. 92
