Why is there more than one price?
RP 93+ points: "The 2006 Chardonnay is medium gold-colored with a superb perfume of mineral, apple, pear, and a hint of lemon. On the palate the wine is tightly wound showing only a fraction of what it will ultimately have to offer. Elegant, with as much appeal to the intellect as to the senses, it is intense and impeccably balanced. This beautifully rendered Chardonnay is likely to have a 20 year life span. ||Among Australian wine cognoscenti Mount Mary Vineyard (along with Yarra Yering) is regarded as the finest producer in Yarra Valley but only 3000 cases are produced and little of it has made it to the USA market. The Yarra Valley seems to do particularly well with the cool climate varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, less well with the Bordeaux varieties, and that appears to be the case for Mount Mary based on this tiny sample. Mount Mary produces a Bordeaux-style blend called Quintet (due to the use of five varietals) but the 2005 that I tasted was too green for my personal taste.||Importer: Gavin Speight, Old Bridge Cellars, Napa, CA: Tel: (707) 258-9552"
