Polperro Mill Hill Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
While the vintage caused much heartache for pinot noir, it produced wonderfully fragrant and poised chardonnays. These have great length and precision in the fruit flavours of the palate, paying little heed to the French oak in which they were matured. This wine precisely demonstrates all those attributes.

Brilliant straw-green; a long and intense palate, with white peach and grapefruit flavours; the acid balance is immaculate, leaving the mouth fresh and thirsting for the next mouthful. A light year away from Even Keel.

“My philosophy when it comes to choosing a vineyard is that if it’s made sparkling base, I want it! You can’t beat natural acidity!” With such a mandate, it’s no surprise that Sam Coverdale’s top chardonnay is sourced from the Mornington’s highest vineyard. The result is an exciting wine of focus and tightly honed restraint, yet still portraying the intensity that defined the Mornington Peninsula in 2010. Taut lemon zest and crunchy white peach meet lifted lemon blossom and spicy fig, pulling into a long, honed tail of lemon zest acidity. The texture is akin to finely ground glass, perhaps because the vines have reached the quartz below?

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
The Mornington's highest vineyard has yielded a focused and tightly honed style that captures the intensity that defines the region and the finely ground glass texture of its quartz subsoils.
