Established in 2014 and situated on the Bellarine Peninsula, Yes said the Seal comprises a suite of refined, limited release cool maritime climate wines. Crafted by Leura Park Estate's winemaker Darren Burke, the mantra for this elite range is to create wines from local Bellarine fruit that are distinguished and complex yet inherently cutting edge. The fruit for the Yes Said The Seal range is sourced exclusively from our select group of Bellarine Peninsula Vineyards. Outstanding fruit of modest yields facilitates wines of finesse, elegance and impeccable structure.
Bold aromas of citrus, honeysuckle and peach dominate with a hint of grilled cashew. The sumptuous, cascading palate embraces citrus vitality alongside ripe melon, peach and nougat. Matured in the finest French oak barrels with minimal lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation, commanding length and precision are signature features of this wine.
Fermented with wild and cultured yeast, a small amount of mlf, matured in French oak (25% new) for 10 months with lees stirring. The mouthfeel provides the first and last highlights of a beautifully made chardonnay; so it's impossible to criticise the wine because the fruit line through the mid-palate was maintained.
