Cobaw Ridge Chardonnay, 2017 Macedon Ranges, VIC
Always expect savoury, interesting chardonnay wines from Cobaw Ridge. Here’s another. Loading in grape flavour and its full potential.
It’s a big chardonnay but not weighty, nor creamy, nor buttery and toasty. There’s just lots of things going on. It smells of honeycomb, cashews, green apple, faint sea spray, the palate with similar flavours, really juicy but with a core of minerally-saline acidity and finishes with a light fino-meets-green-apple edginess. It’s complex as chardonnay gets, alluring and compelling as a drink. It’s fantastic.
