97 Points - James Halliday
One of Australia's true winemaking treasures, Mount Mary was a key driver in the rebirth of the Yarra Valley in the early 1970's after nearly 50 years without viticultural activity. Today, in the words of James Halliday, "its star shines brighter than that of any of the 174 wineries in the valley".
The 2019 Mount Mary Chardonnay is another stunning example of Yarra Valley Chardonnay from the team at Mount Mary that's already attracting plenty of attention. As always, only very limited stocks are available, which will go quickly.
“97 Points. Five clones; hand-picked, destemmed/crushed, barrel fermented in French oak (30% new), 11 months’ maturation. Gleaming straw-green; it’s a wine of exceptional intensity that steadily increases through to the finish and aftertaste. White peach leads, grapefruit following with the acidity. Hallmark Mount Mary. 13% alc; screwcap, drink to 2030.”- James Halliday, Weekend Australian May 2021.
“97 Points. There must be some magic dust landing on Mount Mary or rather, its Chardonnay site. Latterly, this has just been rockin' it. No different this year: a pristine, refined and ultra-elegant wine. A harmonious offering of citrus and light creamy leesy flavours, spice and vanilla-pod oak. The succulence via acidity ensures it lingers long. I got goosebumps tasting this”- Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
