[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Paul Scorpo's Eocene Chardonnay is a barrel selection wine from his three mature-vine blocks (planted 1999 and 2008) on the Scorpo family vineyard in Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17245" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]As you’d expect for the flagship white, this is hand-picked fruit, whole-bunch pressed to French barrels, 25% new, and aged 12 months. No mlf and no lees stirring. Tight as a drum, shot with racy acidity. And no shortage of very flinty sulphides, which would be too much funky reduction, if not for the weight and richness of fruit to balance. Complex, assured, rich, textural, savoury and compelling.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17244" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]This is almost black, with a shot of red/purple. It's not a wallflower. There are plenty of steadfast grainy tannins reined in by a ribbon of acidity. Smells great, tastes even better: black cherries, exotic spices plus sumac, the flavours are intense and satisfying. It opens up more and more, revealing a gloss across the full-bodied palate.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17242" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]While it comes packaged with a level of richness and ripe fruit, a tight line of acidity ensures everything is neatly in place. White nectarines and peaches, a dab of citrus with lots of spice plus honeycomb and cream. Savoury, moreish and super-refreshing. Good drinking now.
