Tasting Notes
-
+

Colour Light Gold
Nose The wine opens with a beautiful perfume of white flowers, stone fruits and nutty, mealy notes.
Palate Refreshing acidity, with the generous juicy, stone fruit and citrus. Floral, nutty and creamy in texture the palate is underpinned by purity and minerality. Light, nimble, and textural with a long lingering finish.
Food Pairing grilled seafood, tasty chicken or fresh crunchy salads
Cellaring 5-10 Years
Notes Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, settled overnight and then racked with solids to barrel, juice was left alone in barrel to ferment naturally, and was aged in old barrels on full-lees for 8 months with occasional stirring. In December 2017, the chardonnay was blended and bottled without fining or filtration and may display a subtle cloudy appearance.

Yarra Valley
The Yarra Valley is a wine region known for producing outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The region has become a leading wine tourism destination, popular for weekend trips as it is located only an hour’s drive north east of Melbourne.

The cool climate region has some of the oldest soils in the world, and produces terrific Chardonnays in the leaner, acid-driven style. Long gone are the days of excessively oaked and oily Chardonnays. Superb Pinot Noir is cultivated with tremendous results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and even Sparkling wines of premium quality are also worth seeking out.

Yarra Valley is the oldest wine region in Victoria with the first vines planted in 1838 at Yering Station. Reg Egan founded the iconic Wantirna Estate in 1963, followed by Dr Bailey Carrodus in 1969 who founded equally lauded Yarra Yering in the foot of the Warramate Hills. Nowadays a fleet of new world wine makers and growers are making sure Yarra Valley stays at the forefront of Victorian wine production. Key wineries to look out for are Mayer, William Downie and Macforbes.

The region in 2009 suffered in the Black Saturday fires, with an estimated 25% of all production was impacted.
