With fruit from select vineyards, this Yarra Valley Chardonnay has fresh citrus and stone fruit aromas with bright fruit on the palate, creamy texture and a clean finish.
Whole-bunch pressed, part fermented and matured in tank, part in French oak, partial mlf, matured for 9 months. The early vintage in the Yarra Valley challenged everyone, the decision to limit the amount of fermentation in oak may have been dictated by the season, but has worked well here. The result is a juicy, fresh palate with a mix of grapefruit and stone fruit flavours, citrussy acidity cleansing the finish.

This subdued white shows plenty of elegance and grace. Spice and toasty notes linger in the background, and pear and melon flavors have a succulent texture, with a thread of acidity that weaves in and out. Drink now through 2022. 2,500 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. Rating: 92 Points and Daily Pick; Wine Spectator
