2012 Eagles Rest 'Maluna' Chardonnay
This wine is deep, powerful and complete with layers of citrus leading the aromatics into almond, nougat and flint like mineral complexity. The palate is tightly bound and a multitude of flavors, creme brulee and vanilla not least. Fermentation derived complexity give it depth and mineral acidity give it line and length.
~~ Matured in French Oak for 8 months ~~
James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
"This is one of the new generation Hunter Valley chardonnays that utterly belie the climate, with or without the suggestion of climate change. It is intense, vibrant and lively, with lemon, grapefruit and lemongrass flavours riding high, wide and handsome, the finish long and clean. Yes, there's oak present as a result of barrel fermentation, but it's far more to do with structure than flavour." - James Halliday 2017
