James Halliday – Five clones; hand-picked, destemmed/crushed, barrel fermented in French oak (30% new), 11 months’ maturation. Gleaming straw-green; it’s a wine of exceptional intensity that steadily increases through to the finish and aftertaste. White peach leads, grapefruit following with the acidity. Hallmark Mount Mary. 13% alc; screwcap, drink to 2030. - (James Halliday, Weekend Australian May 2021)

World Wine – There must be some magic dust landing on Mount Mary or rather, its Chardonnay site. Latterly, this has just been rockin' it. No different this year: a pristine, refined and ultra-elegant wine. A harmonious offering of citrus and light creamy leesy flavours, spice and vanilla-pod oak. The succulence via acidity ensures it lingers long. I got goosebumps tasting this. - (Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion 2022)

About This Wine

The 2019 Chardonnay is defined by its finesse and purity and, at this point in
time, suggests nothing of the warmer vintage. Aromatically it is a little closed at
first but opens up and fully expresses itself with time in the glass. The nose
shows some preserved lemon, pear, white peach, cashew nuts and subtle toasty
oak complexities.

The palate is only medium-bodied but exhibits an exceptional length of flavour and
persistence. There are primary fruit flavours of pear, melon and grapefruit
paired with savoury spice undertones, nuts and buttered toast. There is already
an appealing balance to this wine with phenolics, acidity, primary fruit and
secondary complexity all neatly pieced together.

Yarra Valley Wine

The Yarra Valley wine region is the most important area of wine production in Victoria today, and with its proximity to Melbourne, also the most visited in the state.

Yarra Valley is split into the Upper Yarra and the valley floor. The Upper Yarra is cooler in climate due to its elevation and coupled with younger, fertile, red soils produces most of the region’s notable varietals: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The valley floor is warmer and has predominantly grey soils with pockets of granite and limestone.

Pinot noir has long been considered a notoriously difficult variety to grow. However, the cool climate and longer growing seasons of the Yarra Valley allow the fruit to develop full flavoured and ripe character.

Chardonnay in the past has long been associated with a deep oily, buttery style that experiences full malolactic fermentation and great amounts of oak. This style has since fallen out of favour and wine makers in the Yarra Valley have capitalized on this trend to produce leaner, acid driven Chardonnays that are closer in style to those from Burgundy.
