The 2020 vintage provided an ideal inaugural opportunity for us to present an overall expression of Chardonnay provided from multiple sub-regions of the Yarra Valley. Grapes were sourced from seven select vineyard sites from locations across the central valley floor rising up to the higher, cooler later-ripening upper Yarra to the south. The intention of this breadth of scope is to create an exceptional and complete wine of regional typicity, combining the individual site-specific strengths and expressions to deliver the optimum expression of our region's enviable reputation with this variety.
Showing volume and weight with finesse and restraint, this intense, slow-building, enticingly fuller -bodied Chardonnay is the result of an assemblage of seven vineyard sites. It leads with an aromatic intensity of pear, fig, caraway seed, dates, crème anglaise and char with an undercarriage of flint and chalk. The complex, plush and textural palate delivers richness with focus and precision. Befitting a regionally representative wine of this ilk, the intensity of presence, flavour and subtle power resound with length and persistence.
