Chardonnay - 2016 Yarra Valley Vic
There is a bit of a fashion at the moment for extremely lean and dry styles of Chardonnay that winemakers and sommeliers like, but the drinking public doesn't.
We have achieved what we think is a nice compromise with this wine. It has plenty of flavour without going back to the bad old days of the over-oaked and over-ripe wines of the noughties.
It has some subtle oak with stone fruit and hazelnut flavours and a soft acid finish that won't dissolve your fillings.
The wineries around Melbourne seem to be emerging as some of the best places in Australia for Chardonnay and this is no exception.
