97 Points - James Halliday
Paul Scorpo produces some truly superb fruit from his meticulously planted vineyard on the Mornington Peninsula. With the assistance of acclaimed winemaker Sandro Mosele (Kooyong/ Port Phillip Estate), Scorpo Wines has built a reputation for making some of the Peninsula’s finest examples of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
The 2018 Scorpo Chardonnay is another exceptional example of Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay; with a youthful straw appearance and tightly wound cool-climate aromas of nectarine, mandarin, lemon rind and nougat. The refined and complex palate offers a nice mix of grapefruit and vanilla spice with a precise, compelling mineral finish.

"94 Points. This is essentially the ‘Estate’ release, and is something of a flagbearer chardonnay in the range as a result. Juicy. Long. Pristine. Fennel-infused. Pear-riven. All those things. It’s a lively, lifted, stylish chardonnay with bright barley-accented fruit, wheaty tones and a bit of crunch to its acidity. It’s just beginning to spread it wings. Tasted: Apr19 13.5% alc. $48 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2025+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
