Yarra Yering Chardonnay 2015

94 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY! 

'...it's a quietly powerful chardonnay of grace.' - Wine Front! 

 

“Made from original 1969 plantings and 1980 cuttings from the original vines at Yarra Yering. A highly individual style, reflecting its single vineyard origin. A little ginger cream spice and texture from barrel maturation and fermentation add layers, depth and intrigue while the fresh line of acidity drives the palate prolonging the fruit flavour.”James Halliday Wine Companion, Aug 2017



“Vineyards planted in 1969, wine fermented in barrel, a majority portion of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation. ‘Traditional’ feel.

 It’s a serious feeling chardonnay of medium weight, full intensity, curls of smoke and creamy barrel work, crisp underlying acidity. Mellow and mouthwatering stone fruits, cashew butter, fine chalky-flinty minerality and sheets of crisp acidity. It’s a wine that takes its time to spread through the palate, but retains vitality, persistence and structure. In essence, it’s a quietly powerful chardonnay of grace.” - Mike Bennie, Wine Front, August 2017
