Ross Hill Pinnacle Series Chardonnay 2012


The last of the Ross Hill Wines from Orange.  This wine is the Pinnacle Series Chardonnay from the 2013 vintage.  Its aromatics are classically proportioned, with notes of obvious cedar, stones, clarified butter and lees.  The palate has long length and flavours of ripe nectarine, cedar and butter.  In all, it's a balanced wine, with long length that is well made.  The chardonnay characters are not however particularly hidden away per the style of recent times.  I therefore think it will suit some more than others stylistically.

Rating: Good, Abv: 13.5%, Price: $35, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://rosshillwines.com.au, Tasted: 2014
