Montalto The Eleven Chardonnay 2013

"A-won't you take me to Funkytown?
Won't you take me to Funkytown?"
~ Lipps Inc, Funkytown

Some lovely funky AKA struck-match complexity on display here - something that may not appeal to all. Winemaking on the edge, skillfully navigated by winemaker Simon Black. Florals, lemon, grapefruit - a suggestion perhaps of some melon in the aromatic medley.

Light, a wine that bounces around the palate - finesse, fragility - good focal precision and balance, pinpoint acidity and guiding length. It's undoubtedly a quality release. It commands your attention.

Possesses length in spades - you carry on tasting long after you've consumed, a sign of the quality inputs into this wine. 94
