2019 Murdoch Hill ‘The Rocket’ Chardonnay

$88.00

We are delighted to offer you the third release of a true modern classic and add to this with another absolute beauty. The 2019 is sourced from a pair of dry-grown sites, with mature vines, nestling in the famed Piccadilly Valley. A third parcel comes from Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills, with 20-year-old Bernard clones set on an east-facing slope. The juice has then been gloriously fermented wild for ten months in tight-grained French barriques and puncheons (50% new), seventy-five per cent of which went through malo.

 

Critic Review

“The 2019 Rocket is a powerful, intense expression of complex Adelaide Hills chardonnay that offers fresh-lemon, grapefruit, white-peach, grilled-hazelnut and flinty, pithy aromatic attack. The palate has mouthwatering, rich white and yellow peaches that build and launch in a torrent of concentrated, fresh flavor that is powered by very long, focused acidity. Thrilling chardonnay. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” 97 points, Jamessuckling.com
