Clonale Chardonnay by Kooyong 2008

Kooyong winemaker Sandro Mosele is in the zone with his superb Mornington Peninsula chardonnays. This has wonderful mineral intensity and freshness – and is probably the closest thing you’ll find to Chablis in Australia. It is whole-bunch pressed and barrel fermented but with only 10% new oak it's the fruit that does all the talking. Flinty, dry and brilliant! $26.
