Toolangi produce some very good wine year in, year out. This is another good release chardonnay from their Dixon’s Creek vineyard at the northern end of the Yarra Valley. Subtle and restrained in bearing, the 2016 vintage opens to aromas of smoke, very well judged struck match and lemon. The palate has terrific length, the body is medium-full, and fresh acidity keeps the palate bright. A good release. Rating: Good to Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $28. Source: Sample.
