About

Ministry of Clouds duo Julian Forwood and Bernice Ong tend to reverse engineer their wines. It starts with finding a wine style they love, then they go hunting for the source. If they knock on the door and can't buy the fruit, they try the next door. When you know what you want - go and get it. Two parcels of fruit make up their Tasmanian Chardonnay; the 'pretty' fruit from the picturesque Meadowbank vineyard above the Derwent River, the 'muscle' fruit from the Tamar Valley. The combination is sublime. The clean lines of quartz-like minerality that run through the wine are quintessential Tassie Chardonnay. Long, lean, elegant and balanced on a knife's edge, this 95 point Chardonnay is a thing of beauty.

What it Tastes Like

"A shy and somewhat restraint nose exuding white flowers, peach, nectarine characters, and subtle hints of nougat and wood spice. The palate is tightly wound, with a bedrock of chalky minerality supporting a core of intense stone fruit, framed by lingering acidity." - Ministry of Clouds
