Low stock - hurry!

Limited stock available of this 90 points Yarra Chardonnay.
This drop in particular will have you singing Yarra Valley praises. Drop the retro stereotype because cool climate Chardonnay is our jam and you should absolutely get on board.

Region: Yarra Valley

Alc/Vol: 13%

Smells like: Fresh pear, lemon, poached apple, florals and marzipan

Tastes like: Crisp, fresh and dry with a stonefruit core and citrusy pithy texture

Goes with: Paella del Mar, BBQ chicken with fresh coriander salsa verde, wash rind cheeses. Catching up on Netflix on a Sunday afternoon


Wine making: Flavour development was exceptional. The valley floor provided stone fruit and honeydew melon richness while the Upper Yarra showed more citrus flavours. The vintage was shorter than 2017 and slightly warmer than the average season providing a ripe and complex style of Chardonnay
