Viticulture

100% Chardonnay
2023
Yarra Valley

Tasting Notes

Pale yellow with slight green hue
Fine yellow and green citrus with nectarine kernel and bay leaf spice
Fresh and poised, citrus pith and tart nectarine drive with some power into a structured mid-palate where lovely complexity from fine French oak and barrel ferment build. The finish is carried by a focused line of acidity, where the flavours and texture remain persistent long after you’ve finished your sip.

Matured in 500L puncheons for 8 months of which 22% was new oak. Golden peach and nectarine flesh, sunflower and kernel. Lemon aspen and pineapple nectar. Summer frangipani blooms. Like a giving tree this wine bestows without being buxom and relying on oak for its breadth. It’s pure fruit heaven. Picked with free flowing acidity and supported by vanilla cake and grated nutmeg oak nuances. It’s still light on its feet but will satisfy the chardonnay drinker who chooses wine based on taste and substance. Serve alongside a homemade salmon quiche.

This is such a good Chardonnay, especially when you consider it sells for $40. A complex bouquet of spicy nectarine and mealy citrus. The palate is brilliantly composed with a nectarine and lemon zest combo balanced with subtle oak influence. A fine minerally chalky acid sustains a very long dry finish. Excellent.
