This will be the 87th Aussie Chardonnay I’ve logged in my Vivino wine app. I think I may be a bit of a Chardy fiend!
The Royal 2018 Millon Estate Chardonnay is made from Eden Valley (South Australia) fruit. While maturing, this royal Chardy spends time in French oak (about 9 months) to help give the wine a creamy texture. It also undergoes partial malolactic fermentation (tart malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid).
A big thanks to Millon Wines for sending me this sample over, I gave it the full royal treatment.
In the glass, it’s a pale yellow shade. On the nose it made me think of freshly cut honeydew melon, white peach, pear and a spritz of grapefruit. While in the mouth it’s extremely elegant and quite subtle in flavour yet focused and juicy. Fresh, light and thirst quenching.
$42 a bottle.
