Moorooduc Chardonnay

The 2009 Moorooduc McIntyre Vineyard Chardonnay has quite a firm yellow colour - a bit of a worry. Yet the flavours on the front palate are good: citrus, pear and apple - an appealing mix. The oak treatment appears light. But there are downsides: the mouthfeel is not that round and the finish a bit in-distinctive.

This is a modern Chardonnay in a Chablis style, but it lacks the linear features of the Chablis and its minerality.

Score: 89/0
