Description

Vineyard

Our Chardonnay block was established in 2007 by grafting two acres of the gentle North facing Shiraz block (planted 1998) with the Chardonnay clone I10V1.

Winemaking

The aim was to make a rich, yet fresh and age worthy Chardonnay. Fruit was hand picked and whole bunch pressed to tank. The cloudy juice was then transferred to French oak barrels (mostly 500L puncheons with one new 300L hogshead) to ferment with wild yeasts. To keep the wine tight, malolactic fermentation was discouraged with this wine. The wine remained in barrel for nine months before being blended in tank for a further three months ageing on lees before bottling.

Sensory Analysis

The wine has a slight green tinge to the pale gold colour that hints at the wine’s vibrancy. A cloud of apple pie, cinnamon and white peach aromas lift from the glass. The palate has impressive balance, being full flavoured yet elegant and shows flavours of grilled cashews, nectarine and white chocolate. There’s an acid backbone that gives the wine a long, limey finish. This wine has been released whilst tightly wound (and delicious) in its youth, it will evolve over the next 10+ years and develop further layers of complexity.

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.
