Grapes Varietal: Chardonnay

Size: 750ml

Tasting Note:
Scented with fresh citrus and stone fruit, this Yarra Valley Chardonnay has bright fruit on the palate, creamy texture and a clean finish.

Awards / Rating:
An easy to enjoy style with a pleasant palate, food of all kinds no issue. You have to wonder whether slightly earlier picking (higher natural titratable acidity) would have made a better wine at no additional cost.

Additional Information

  • Description
  • SEASON There were no major heatwaves in the 2018 season; nevertheless, it was a warm season overall and the harvest was a touch early. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. An extended dry, mild patch over January and February was excellent for Chardonnay fruit, creating ripe flavours balanced with bright acid. WINEMAKING Our fruit was harvested by hand at the end of February then whole-bunch pressed and settled in tank before transfer to tank and barrel for fermentation. The wine underwent a partial malolactic fermentation and was aged for 10 months – part in stainless steel tank to retain fresh fruit flavours, part in barrel for added complexity. We used a mix of old and new French oak barrels.
