Yeringberg Chardonnay 2016
This year’s Chardonnay has a ripe and mineral-inflected complexity and savouriness. The nose is powerful yet wonderfully restrained, with hints of white peach, biscuit, honey, grapefruit and pineapple. In the mouth there’s a delicacy, purity and spine tingling acidity that brings focus to a generous and rounded palate that slowly builds and opens out with effortless generosity. And it goes on and on.
The Wine Front – Full-bodied attack, but it becomes more elegant as it drives through the palate. Complexity it certainly does not lack. Peach, bacon, spice and nectarine at first but increasingly wheaty and dry pear-like from the mid-palate onwards. Wonderful length. Stunning wine.
James Halliday – Hand-picked fruit, destemmed and crushed aged in French barrels (30% new) for 11 months with 30% mlf. Always a flavoursome, fuller-bodied Chardonnay with stone fruit, figs and leesy, creamy notes. Yet it keeps a well-formed frame with bright acidity helping. 95 points. JAMES HALLIDAY
World Wine – The de Pury family are consistent, quality winemakers who do their own, fad-free thing. This is a traditional style of Chardonnay with buttery and nutty elements, rich and full-bodied, but also fine and beautifully made. It's loaded with character. Huon Hooke Gourmet Traveller WINE
