About

The Merricks Chardonnay is the most sought-after of the Garagiste white wines. It's the most powerful of Barney's Chardonnays, the kind of wine that blows your hair back. The fruit was as good as it gets in 2015 on the Peninsula: ripe, balanced and incredibly intense - the perfect raw materials for Barney to strut his Chardy-making stuff. Barney is one of the finest Chardonnay makers in the region and this 2015 release is some of his best work to date. Campbell Mattinson rated it 95 points crystallising the fact that if you've loved his wines in the past, the 2015 is a knockout not to be missed. If you're yet to give them a shot, prepare to have your world rocked by this boutique artisanal producer.

What it Tastes Like

Exceptional power here. Whiffs of sulphides and struck matchstick, peach and nectarine. All this tied up with a little barrel-derived funk. It's taught with ripe fruit and the drive through the palate is formidable. Pure intensity and fruit weight with spiced apple notes and slick oak. Simply stunning. Benchmark Mornington Chardonnay.
