Stonier Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay 2013

I arrived home later than normal. The children were already in bed. "Dinner's in the kitchen" stated the Mrs, "it's yummy". Basically 'flaky' fish pie, a Delia Smith special - with a few mods to try and get some vegetables of note into the kids. They're not daft those two, can spot such an attempt a mile away.

Chardonnay. That's what I wanted.

Golden with a green hue. Stonefruit, sits atop some oak. Nicely pitched. It's more about the fruit, you know there's some wood underneath.

Good weight, eschews the anaemic Chardonnay so in vogue; toasty, lime/citrus - a little cream and vanilla. Length is OK, intensity is moderate. It'll flesh out one suspects, put on a little filling. Note the plus sign here. 90+
