Serrat Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2019


This wine is 100% from the Mendoza block of Chardonnay, which was planted in 2007. Barrel fermented with full solids in 500 Litre French oak puncheons and aged on lees for 11 months. Only addition to this wine is SO2. 15% new Oak. The 2019 is loaded with stone fruits, rock melon, grapefruit and citrus notes. There is an under lying thread of complexity from the natural ferment, full use of solids and barrel fermentation, that will continue to come to the fore as the wine ages. The 2019 is remarkable tightly focused for a warmer than average vintage, it is mineral and coiled and has great concentration, it will keep for a very long time and continue to develop and build in texture as it ages. Best 2023-2030″- Serrat Wines.

This wine is impressive year in year out, it’s definitely down the rockmelon and stonefruit route with incredible detail to building lees notes in the cellar. Limited availability so don’t mess around.
