2021 Solum Wines Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay
Ryan Horaczko is the man behind the brand. This is his first release. We've known Ryan for 15 years. He's a great bloke, handy footballer and now fine winemaker. During his agricultural and winemaking studies he worked with Darrin Gaffy at Principia Wines.
He made only 100 dozen of this Chardonnay at Principia, with fruit off a two sites (Balnarring & Merricks). Barrel ferment characters are noticeable - with butterscotch and burnet match aromas. The palate has toffee and honeyed toast flavours with taut acidity keeping it clean.
