Tucks Ridge now has new owners, with Montalto taking over. This Tucks Ridge Turramurra Chardonnay 2016 is one of the single vineyard releases from Tucks, from the Tuerong/Dromana area.
There’s a fullness and a broad edge here that gives volume but arguably without the required acidity. A nutty edge and a creamy leesy richness, the layered and biscuity palate has flavour but also a warmth and fat to finish. Lovers of old school Mornington Chardonay will enjoy this.
Best drinking: Now. It will only get fatter. 17/20, 90/100. 13.8%, $50. Would I buy it? No.
