This is pretty spiffy Chardonnay it has to be said. Chardonnay of line and length. It’s funky on opening but it quickly straightens up and settles down. White peach in all its pure glory; flint; the freshness of nectarine; the fibre of cedarwood runs towards nodes of woodsmoke. The finish is a spinnaker in which flavour is held. We are in beautiful territory here.
94+ points. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Onannon Single-Site Tuerong Chardonnay comprises Chardonnay clone 95. The fruit was whole bunch-pressed and then sent straight to barrel (33% new oak) to ferment with indigenous yeasts.

Of the three barrels, one was sulphured three weeks later after fermentation to prevent MLF; another was sulphured three months later after building some texture on gross lees. And the last barrel was left unsulphured all year to go through malolactic fermentation. All the barrels were stirred monthly. The wine was blended in early December, filtered and bottled in late December 2019.

Pronounced nose with very classy oak, nutmeg spice, white flowers and sweet, inviting fruit. Skips along though with plenty of flavour. Spice, zip, and great style. Delicious.

Description

About Onannon

Overlooking Port Phillip Bay, our home base is a five acre vineyard in Red Hill on the Mornington Peninsula. Planted primarily to the MV6 and 777 clone of Pinot Noir we have been making wine from this vineyard since 2009.

In 2014 we took over full management of this special place. In addition we have we building relationships with various growers on the Mornington Peninsula to source parcels of outstanding fruit.

Onannon is three people Will Byron, Sam Middleton and Kaspar Hermann. We make wines that speak a little of ourselves and a lot of the place. We each contributed the last letters of our surnames to make Onannon.
