Chris Bendle made his first wine under his DCB label while working at Hoddles Creek Estate, in the Yarra Valley, under the watchful eye and with the active encouragement of winemaker Franco D’Anna.

Attractive wine from the get-go, nicely balanced, flavoursome, pure-feeling, crisp and refreshing. Opens with green apple, flinty notes, some lemon soap character, a touch of yoghurt 

All upper Yarra fruit from Gladysdale. Fermented and matured in 1–5yo demi-muid and barrique. Partial mlf. A bright green gold. Stone fruits intermingle with more savoury, charcuterie notes and a little grilled cashew. Taut, with good persistence, this very well-priced modern Yarra chardonnay should fill out nicely over next 6–12 months. Drink to: 2025; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: January 2022; Alcohol: 13.1%; Rating: 92 Points & Special Value Star; Philip Rich; James Halliday Wine Companion
