Ross Hill Maya and Max Chardonnay 2013


This chardonnay from Ross Hill has seen some lees work, which will appeal to those who enjoy its quite peculiar aromatics.  Cheese, yoghurt, restrained lemon and yellow grape fruit and, of course, lees came to mind on the nose.  The palate gives an unexpected broad impression, with notes of yellow peach and tangy yellow grapefruit but has some good length.  With time in the glass, I wondered whether this wine was entirely dry and had a dash of residual sugar running over the mid palate.  Perhaps I am wrong.  Either way, I felt this wine didn't quite come together to achieve a balance with first impressions stronger than last ones.
