Tomich Woodside Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017 - Adelaide Hills
The Tomich family hails from the Adriatic Coast in Croatia where winemaking is a way of life. Jack Tomich Senior arrived in Australia in 1903 bringing with him all of the grape growing and winemaking skills of his forefathers. 3 generations of grape growers and winemakers later, the Tomich family now owns one of the best sites in the Adelaide Hills and had kept its ancestral way of softly farming the land and is pushing for sustainable growing practices.
Lean style of chardonnay with chalk, white peach and lemon curd flavours sizzling through the palate. It lacks perhaps for a little weight but for line and length it's excellent. You'd bet that time will add flesh; it will hit a higher gear if it does. Give it at least another year in bottle. Drink to: 2025; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 90 Points; Campbell Mattinson; James Halliday Wine Companion
Light to mid-yellow colour, with a nutty, almond-like aroma and a trace of toastiness. The palate is crisp and racy, intense and mineral, lemony, tight and energetic. A scintillating, almost Chablis-like chardonnay. Marvellously nervy; Drink: 2019-2025; Rating: 91 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
