2018 Kooyong Faultline Chardonnay Mornington Peninsula – The Kooyong vineyard is located on the Mornington Peninsula at Tuerong, on Miocene sedimentary soils. Their wines are made from domain grown, handpicked grapes and aim to manifest terroir: the integration of their geology and soils with the macroclimate of their region, the mesoclimates of the various sites within their vineyard and the weather of the annual grape growing season. Their cultural operations in the vineyard and practices in the winery endeavour to articulate these unique characteristics diligently, respectfully and without artifice.
With a classic and typical nose, the 2018 Faultline presents aromas of lemon peel, nectarine and honeysuckle. With air, it shows more intriguing notes of fresh cream, candied ginger together with a fleck of flint. More stone fruit characters appear on the long, driven and complex palate. Strong brine and preserved lemon flavours run throughout, together with an attractive mid-palate suppleness. This builds momentum with detail and finishes with fresh acid and clarity.
It requires time in the cellar to reach its full potential.
