Wine Region: Yarra Yering, Australia

Grape: Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

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

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.
