95 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday

2014 was a great vintage for Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley. The cooler summer and lack of major ongoing heat spikes allowed the fruit to achieved flavor ripeness without losing its natural acidity. Each parcel was hand picked  at optimum ripeness, whole bunch pressed using an air bag press, and minimized phenolic extraction which allowed minimal fining additives later on in the process. The juice was settled for 24 hours then racked to predominantly 2-5 year old French oak barriques where it underwent fermentation. Some parcels underwent wild fermentation while others were inoculated with selected cultivated strains. Following ferment the wine remained on yeast lees for 8 months prior to careful blending. No malolactic fermentation.
“Its Pinot Noir sibling may not have had enough intensity, but no such issues raise their head here. This is a marvellous expression of Yarra Valley chardonnay, packed with grapefruit and white peach on its bouquet and very long palate, the barrel ferment oak inputs just so. It will probably be at its best over the next 5 years, for has been fast out of the blocks.” – 95 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
