Printhie MCC Chardonnay 2011

Printhie's Mt Canabolas Collection (MCC) chardonnay from the 2011 vintage is another good chardonnay from the Orange region.  It has complex aromatics of lemon, biscuit, chalk and grapefruit and well handled oak.  Towards long length on the palate, the wine has refreshing acidity and the aromatics carry through.  This is a good quality wine on the grounds of its balance and complexity, quite long length, and its mealy and lemon driven characters.  A classic cool climate chardonnay that is ready to drink now and over the next few years.  Good to Very Good
