Moss Wood Chardonnay Margaret River, West Australia – 2013
Bright fruit notes prevail on the palate, with lively peach, melon and lime flavours, enhanced by crisp acidity and medium to full body. The wine has good length, with an interesting combination of caramel, malt and roast almonds, as well as some light, toasty oak characters.
As is so often the case with good Chardonnay, this wine has such bright fruit notes and complexity, it can definitely be enjoyed as a youngster. However, it is also one for the cellar and will gain a more complex nose as the bottle bouquet builds over the next 10 years. The palate will soften and become perceivably richer, so it will drink consistently for at least a further 10 years after that.
