Kooying Chardonnay 2007

The more I taste, the more I am coming to the conclusion that chardonnay is the most reliably good varietal produced in the Yarra Valley and the Mornington Peninsula.  Chardonnays from these parts do not hit the heights of some the Margaret River chardonnays (for example, they are not in the league of the Leeuwin Estate wines recently reviewed), but they exhibit a typicity that is quite constant, pleasant and easy to detect in blind tastings.  This wine is no exception.  An aroma of oak, fruit and lingering sweet stone fruits.  A clean and pleasant palate. 84 to 85 points.
