Lemon and Lime sherbet, white peach, chalk and slate, apple blossom, together with some roasted almonds and hazelnuts. There are some brioche and gentle oak aromas just to round out the package.
A collage of citrus and stone fruit flavours are supported by quenching acidity, together with a mineral lick and generous texture from the lees work. This is a delicious Chardonnay with hallmark Pennon Hill qualities exhibiting great varietal definition and regional expression.
Montalto founders and owners John and Wendy Mitchell initially planned a small vineyard by the coast. A place to relive earlier years spent holidaying with friends in Southern France. But John’s love of the outdoors, his interest in viticulture and corporate knowledge soon combined to grow Montalto into one of the Mornington Peninsula’s most popular destinations. True cool climate characteristics abound in the wines, which have received multiple awards on the Australian Show circuit. Another 5 red star rated winery from James Halliday.
