Wedgetail Estate 2016 Single Vineyard Chardonnay Yarra Valley Australia 14%



Low yield of 2 tonnes per acre. 35% new oak. Matured in French oak barriques, 35% new, for 7 months. No malolactic to preserve natural acidity.

Bright pale golden straw colour. The barrel fermentation gives a refined and elegant palate with nectarine, white peach, citrus, mineral elements and roasted cashew nut undertones, all perfectly integrating with a hint of richness on the long complex finish. On the nose there is a subtle toasty, vanilla and caramel aromatics coupled with nectarine fruit character. This is reminiscent of Chassagne Montrachet with its breadth of palate, complexity and depth. A striking and beautifully balanced dry white wine of immense charm.
