An outstanding, oaky Chardonnay from an esteemed Chardonnay producer. One of the Yarra Valley's best estates, the 2017 vintage was particularly strong. Drink now, or enjoy the immense cellaring potential that the wine offers.

Jane Faulkner, James Halliday's Wine Companion

North-facing site at 240m elevation, on red volcanic soil at Wandi East, close planted in 1990 to P58 clone. Cropped 7.5t/ha. Hand harvested and sorted before whole-bunch pressing directly to 20% new French oak puncheons for natural fermentation. Matured on lees for 10 months post-ferment, followed by another 6 months in tank. Bottled after a single filtration. It might have a smidge more volume and ripeness compared with the exemplary 2017, but this is a very fine follow up. The same DNA. It's about harnessing the power. Expect citrus, flint and form. Length, precision and a mineral drive. The devil is in the details, according to winemaker Dave Bicknell. This wine is the embodiment – indeed the reward – of that.
