Toolangi Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2004

Another review from Huon Hooke in the SMH:

“This is the middle-ranked of Toolangi’s three chardonnays and was made by Tom Carson at Yering Station. It’s a bright, fresh, fruit-driven chardonnay with plenty of subtle, underlying complexity that builds as you sip, showing real richness and depth and a lingering aftertaste that’s beautifully balanced and satisfying. Aromas of peach and nougat are joined by vanilla, toasted nuts and honey in the mouth. Oak is present but is so well harmonised as to be unnoticed. It’s crisp and alive in the mouth despite its suble richness. Alcohol at 13 per cent is well balanced. It drinks well now but should keep nicely for four or five years. It comes with a choice of cork or screwcap. 95/100

Food: roast chicken; coq au vin made with white wine; fully ripe Bouche d’Affinois or Brie de Meaux cheeses; cold lobster and salad.”
