This was another one of the Toms Cap Vineyard Retreat tipples we enjoyed on our weekend stay at their vineyard cottages here in Gippsland last weekend. This 3 Dog 2017 Chardonnay is barrel fermented yet retains a lot of crisp freshness.
We enjoyed a glass or 3 while in the spa pool at our cottage while the sun set, it was bliss! It is also nice that the cottages have decent glassware – they were Riedel.
In the glass, it’s a medium yellow shade. The nose makes me think of nectarines, vanilla spice, a sprinkling of almond flakes and a slice of honeydew melon. In the mouth, I find it rather textural up front with a nice refreshing acid-driven finish. A delicious balance of oak and citrus. $34 a bottle.
