2019 Joshua Cooper Captains Creek Vineyard
From Blampied, which I have never visited, but want to just to take a photo in front of the town sign welcoming visitors to it, Population 212 (2016 census).
A flavoursome yet relatively lean chardonnay, offers up green apple, light nougat character, prickly, saline mineral vein through it all and a flinty finish. A wine of character without being too overt, a little waxy in texture, lingering far beyond each sip. Very good chardonnay, a little more square than other Josh Cooper releases, but ain’t nothing wrong with that. The top line message can read, ‘chardonnay showing flavour, thank you’.
