2016 Geoff Merrill Reserve Chardonnay McLaren Vale Coonawarra – The colour is a mid straw with youthful green hues.
The aroma shows a wonderfully complex blend of lime and lemon with tropical fruit notes, cut straw and melon. Fermentation and maturation in French oak has provided additional notes of cream and toast with hints of cashew and lanolin.
The palate is full of fruit and quite opulent without being fat or broad. Well balanced acidity ties it all together and attractive oak provides structure and complexity of flavour. The wine finishes on a refreshing zesty citrus peel note.
