Very good drinking here.
About The Wine
Chardonnay is one of winemaker Sam Middleton's specialities.
Here's a great value example of his talents from his home block, the revered, Mount Mary vineyard in the Yarra Valley.
For the 2018, Sam isolated the younger plantings of Chardonnay to release under the Reflexion label. It was made in the same way as the iconic Mount Mary Chardonnay and Triolet, with full barrel fermentation, and a healthy amount of solids for added palate texture and weight.
In Sam's opinion, it's a fresher, more lively style of Chardonnay from his family home.
About Mount Mary
One of the great Australian domains is in the form of its life with young Sam Middleton as head winemaker.
The list of accolades for the great Mount Mary is long and rich. They are one of the country's most celebrated and collectable family-owned estates.
From the impossible balance of the iconic Quintet and Triolet blends to the scintillating Chardonnays and the rare and almost mythical Pinot Noir, there is not a hair out of place in the Mount Mary line up.
With Sam Middleton in charge of the winemaking process, Mount Mary is entering its second golden age as one of the jewels of the Yarra Valley.
