Moss Wood 2017 Chardonnay – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
Golden and rich. It’s full of peach, apple and lime, with plenty of spicy sawn wood and vanilla. Full-bodied, and full of flavour, powerful and quite oaky, but with the fruit to mop it up. Almond and butter gloss cut with firm grapefruity acidity, and a long dry finish that almost feels tannic. Slight warmth through the wine which doesn’t distract from the overall bounty of Chardonnay on offer here. Bold but excellent.
