Region: Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
Vines: 60% of the grapes for this wine were grown on the two original Chardonnay blocks, planted in 1969. The remaining 40% of grapes are from the Crécy block planted in 2012 from new Chardonnay clones 95 and 548.
Cellaring: Delicious upon release but will reward careful cellaring for up to 10 years should you want more developed toasted notes.
Vintage 2017: A late start to harvest due to good rainfall and a cool to mild summer without any heat spikes to advance ripeness. Picking lasted 10 weeks at a leisurely pace delivering grapes with beautiful flavour development coupled and good acid retention.
