Description

In an interesting stylistic difference, many of the Chardonnay winemakers across Australia's more boutique regions (Yarra Valley and Margaret River) seem to be moving away from MLF in their wines. Kiwi winemaking icons Warren Gibson and Lorraine Leheny (Aussie by birth) use the technique to great effect here on their Yarra Valley side project, building body through extended lees contact and maintaining acidity to give a gorgeously deep yet refreshing style.

Smells

Oyster shell, white peach, hazelnut and biscuit.

Tastes

Loads of palate weight and biscuity, nutty and creamy texture, the saline note that runs through every vintage of this Chardonnay plays perfectly with the zippy acid. A joy to drink and savour, this is one for the true Chardonnay fan. Now to 2024.
