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.

Oh, it’s juicy and flavoursome, fresh pineapple with some rice pudding kind of thing, dusted with a little cinnamon, but it’s also quite tight and controlled, some flint and citrus, good line, a pretty long finish of tang and flinty feels. It’s sunshine and picnics, with a wee bit of savoury stuff in the aftertaste. Value. Value. Value. And it’ll likely be better again with a bit more time in bottle.
