2015 Balgownie Estate Chardonnay Yarra Valley

2015 Balgownie Estate Chardonnay Yarra Valley
New Vintage Release

The Yarra Valley has proved an exceptional region for the production of quality Chardonnay and we are delighted that our Yarra Valley vineyard has sufficiently matured to allow the production of an Estate wine. A subtle yet sophisticated and elegant wine with lovely fruit flavours of white peach, melon citrus and gentle oak.  While this is a sensational wine to enjoy now, it will benefit from cellaring over the following 5 to 7 years.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"Here awaits the soprano in the cooler Yarra dirt! Taut and tensile, the stone fruit melody strays more towards nectarine, juicy and tangy, as it pinches its way across a palate decorated with high quality French oak and a leesy tension." James Halliday 94/100
Winemaker Notes
Our Estate Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and provided free run juice with a balance of concentrated flavours, acid and notable elegance. Barrel fermentation took place over a six week period after which the wine was aged on lees for a further ten months. Regular batonnage (lees stirring) was employed to promote mid-palate complexity and mouthfeel. A proportion of the wine was fermented in oak to promote further complexity in the wine.
Food Pairing Notes
Asian style marinated pork with Asian herbs and spices and kumara mash
