YARRA YERING CHARDONNAY 2017

Wine Region: Yarra Yering, Australia

Grape: Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Bright and flinty oyster shell nose with white blossom, grapefruit peel, pears and lemongrass with an ever so intriguing oak char. Finesse combine with pillowy fruit weight, this is a wine that is fine boned as well as generous. Perfectly balanced fruit sit interlaced with a bright citrus acidity. A little pithy texture and an extremely fine grained oak tannin framework.

About the Winery

In 1973 Dr Bailey Carrodus released the first commercial vintage of wine from the Yarra Valley since 1923. The wines reflect this highly individual man, the site he chose so carefully, and the vagaries of the seasons in which they are produced. Today, Yarra Yering's Winemaker Sarah Crowe is honouring the tradition that Dr Carrodus started in 1969. She is focusing on giving individual blocks and varieties the time and attention they deserve to continue making high quality wine.
