Fully worked and fully sick mate! The manner that a grape variety has been dealt with really changes the experience. The last wine was zippy and this wine is rich and full in flavour yet they both have acidity at their core. I am changing my mind about 2011 as the white wines are bloody spectacular. This wine is no exception!
Kooyong Estate Chardonnay 2011
Long? Yes! Plumped up? Yes! Dying to be opened? No! What is most unbelievable is the length of the palate and it crawl up my mouth in an even and totally balanced manner with no holes at all. It is like a thrilling novel as I just want to see what is next. The oak does play a part but it is more a creamy mouth-feel and a thicker texture that it adds. But you ask about the flavours. Well they are typical for the area and they finish with a mouth watering acidity.
