2021 Meadowbank Tasmania Chardonnay
Came with a silver Mickey Mouse Ooshie inside the box, which was nice. If I send him back, he will have to go into quarantine, so he’s staying for a while. Anyway, 80s planted chardonnay pressed to barrel, a small percentage new, with little stirring (which is unusual for winemaker Peter Dredge). Bright, intense, all the ripe lemon/lime and green apple with a little spice and flinty/smoky character. Moves nutty, saline, fleshy and more savoury in the flavour department as it crackles through the mouth, finishing long and tight. Mouth-watering, to use that old chestnut, with a Riesling like whip-crack, but Chardonnay character aplenty too.
