We’re stopping at Moro estate tonight, as we set on to try their Chardonnay that matured in oak.
Moro is undoubtedly one of this year’s pleasant surprises, as all the wines I tasted were a delightful treat. No wonder that the vintage 2018 scored a bronze award at this year’s Decanter awards. This is a wine that matured in barrique with malolactic conversion.
Moro’s Chardonnay presents a bright, golden yellow colour with a dense texture.
Its aromas are intense. We detect boiled apple, yellow plum, also fig and canned citrus. Hints of butter are joined by the aroma of sweet, festive bread, vanilla and a slight hint of dried Mediterranean herbs.
The taste is soft and warm. At the same time, the expressed acidity in combination with minerality balances the taste. An intense, full-bodied wine with a lasting and elegant aftertaste.
