Yarra Valley Chardonnay done very well under the watch of Punt Road's Tim Shand. This is such an exceptional Chardonnay at the price - fruit quality, balance, refreshment and extraordinary length of flavour. Notes of lime pith and stone fruit. On the palate, nougat, vanilla and ripe peach combine to make an elegant, harmonious wine. Carefully hand-picked and whole bunch pressed; 100% of the juice was barrel fermented, a portion of which was fermented naturally. During 10 months maturation in French oak (20% new), some barrels were regularly stirred to build texture and complexity.

Plenty of struck match and funk, white nectarine, pine-lime, a little spice and nougat. It’s medium-bodied, quite savoury and complex, juicy lemon/lime, fine chalky texture, and an almost earthy finish of good length. A lot of bang for the bucks, as it were.
