2021 Village Chardonnay


Our Village family of wines are classic expressions of the varieties that the Yarra Valley does best, letting the bright, vibrant fruit flavours speak for themselves. There is a delicate richness from barrel ferment along with the melon fruit and citrus that fleshes out the mid-palate, which runs through to a long finish.

Tasting Notes

Bright, pale straw.
Opens with a touch of flint amongst citrus, white peach and nectarine.
Hints of barrel ferment complexity balanced with fresh citrus acidity, leaving the wine with a long and clean finish.



Professional Reviews

It’s much like the Little Yering chardonnay release of the same year but it’s just a little fuller, a smidgen more oak, a notch more satisfaction as a result. Custard powder and apples, grapefruit and peach with cuts of green apple and pear skin running through. It’s good now but its best days are yet ahead of it.
White peach, grapefruit, white flower and melon skin aromas. Quite soft, round and peachy on the palate, a touch of tangy, citrusy acidity and creaminess. Easy drinking, round and delivers decent chardonnay flavour.
Made from 20yo vines and fermented and matured in 500L French barrels (16% new). A bright, medium green-gold hue. A ripe fruit-driven nose, redolent of apricots and peaches. Fresher and tighter on the palate than the nose suggests, this has good structure and length. Will look even better in another 6 months or so.
Yering Station has a veritable cornucopia of 100 Best-worthy wines this year and so it was a toss-up as to which would be the vinous vanguard for this estate. I chose ‘Village Chardonnay’ because it has a Grand Vin feel with a wickedly attractive price. It is not the richest of the brigade, with focussed, Chablis-like tones, but it is the pristine and pithy grapefruit notes and white flower beauty throughout that really set my pulse racing and it arrives in the UK in January 2023.
