Region: Yarra Valley
First Glance: Flinty, Grapefruit, Powerful
A lively, fresh Chardonnay that punches well above its weight in quality. Bright pale straw with green hues, extremely vibrant and brilliant in the glass. The nose shows hints of grapefruit and stone fruit, both rich and flavoursome yet subtle. No real oak influence, but plenty of mealy, flinty notes. The palate is poised and powerful, showing off a benchmark Yarra Valley vintage. Again oak in the background it simply helps usher the beautiful pure fruit to the back of an effortless long and fine palate. This wine will look terrific over the medium term. A great pairing with freshly caught King George Whiting, crunchy kipflers and good company.
