2019 Chardonnay
Yarra Valley, Victoria

A lighter fresher fruit driven style of Chardonnay sourced from Yarra Valley fruit.

$25 each

Description

A well-crafted, medium-bodied, loosely knit expression, in the best sense. Plying a mineral pungency with a striving for real flavour, there is plenty on offer. Stone-fruit accents, honeydew melon, roasted almonds and praline. The oak, like a blowhole that stems the flow while liberating it when necessary, allowing the flavours to ebb and flow long. Lovely drinking. NED GOODWIN MW - AUGUST 3, 2022
