Main Ridge Estate Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Made with infinite attention to detail from some of the oldest chardonnay vines on the Mornington Peninsula; all the fruit and oak components are fused so seamlessly together that it is hard, if not impossible, to unpick the many strands.

Inherent approachability meets stimulating detail in this impressive vintage for Main Ridge, capturing the intensity and presence of this single estate vineyard in fresh white peach, grapefruit, lemon zest, fig, lemon butter, honey and mixed spice. For all of this complexity and generosity, it pulls into a refined and honed finish, drawn out long and linear by fine, textural minerality, holding impressive poise and persistence.

The main event. Full wild yeast, full barrel ferment and full malo builds layers of textural minerality, nougat and bacon fat complexity behind the drive and zest of grapefruit. Beautifully complete, ready now.

Bright green-gold; has the Mornington Peninsula stamp all over it, particularly that of the coolest part of the Peninsula, with a finesse and focus that is both delicate yet sharp; white peach, nectarine, oak spice and cashew flow through the long palate and aftertaste.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Bright straw-green; as usual, a very complex and strongly textured chardonnay, reflecting 100% wild yeast, 100% barrel fermentation, and 100% mlf, all adding up to rich, creamy, nutty characters joining the nectarine and white peach fruit.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Glowing yellow-green; richly textured wine, with barrel ferment and malolactic components central to the style; some honeyed nutty elements adding to the flavour and mouthfeel.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Right in the mainstream of the Main Ridge style, wonderfully rich, deep and already complete, the fruit carrying all the winemaker inputs.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Elegant wine; controlled complexity from the rich stone fruit and fig mid-palate and positive barrel ferment components; powerful finish and length.
