About

The Punch Lance's Chardonnay is an excellent example of a winemaker who truly listens to their fruit. This unique amphitheatre vineyard in the Yarra Valley producers powerful, full-flavoured Chardonnay fruit. Rather than impose a leaner or more austere style onto the wine, here James Lance leans into the style, giving the fruit good support in the form of quality French oak. The end result for the 2013 vintage is a Chardonnay more voluptuous in style than many of it's Yarra Valley contemporaries. The nods of approval coming in the form 96 points from James Halliday and 94 points from Campbell Mattinson, both of which acknowledging how deliciously tempting the wine is now, there's no need to wait.

What it Tastes Like

"Delicious style of wine. Plenty of flavour and plenty of length. Grapefruit, cut green apples, stone fruits, steel. Complex mealy characters too. And input from spicy, bacony oak. One mouthful and you’re hooked. There’s plenty of zing to the finish; you’d imagine it will age well; but to enjoy it fully there’s no real need to wait." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
