This is a super example of modern regional Chard
The Yarra Valley was Victoria’s first wine growing district with a history stretching back 170 years.
The Yarra Valley is now recognised as one of Australia’s foremost cool climate regions, capable of making classic styles from a wide range of varieties. It is known as the birthplace of Victoria’s wine industry.
The regional emphasis on the quality and flavour of wine has spread to the local produce grown in the same fertile soil and expertly tended. Expect fine contemporary fare and ambient dining in some of the most picturesque settings in Victoria. (Wine Australia)
Premium Australian Chardonnay has evolved dramatically from the rich, ripe full flavored versions of the late 1900’s. The sourcing of fruit from cooler climate areas combined with a more gentle touch with regards to oak use, lees contact and malolactic conversion has led to a more restrained balanced, age-worthy style.
