Two Tonne Tasmania TMV Chardonnay 2018
'From the Three Wishes vineyard, in the lee of the Batman Bridge, and Waverley Vineyard, east of Launceston. Picked mostly for leaner expression, one parcel does sees full malolactic fermentation, where the second parcel, slightly riper, sees no malo. Detail and consideration in winemaking.
Lean scents of green apple, citrus blossom, faint nougat and marzipan. Refreshing kind of vibe in taste, green apple, again, slightly powdery-talc-like texture, mouth-watering-steely acidity. Enough texture and flavour to titillate but the gist is more mineral-laden leaner style in general. It’s done well.'
