Toolangi Chardonnay 2016

I like Toolangi's MO, namely - as I see it - to look after the fruit and then to contract the best winemakers across the Yarra region to make the best wine out of it. 

It evokes a golden aura and aroma, creamy and wheaten. There's grilled stonefruit with, what's like, a dribble of flax oil across it, subtle Vanilla oak tops it off. Fuller figured, it has a good spread - fair oozing across the palate. 

It's matched with a good line of acidity and feint minerality. The Vanilla adds its signature through the final third. Well executed balanced wine, just delivers and judiciously handled. 91
