The Athletes of Wine Viñero Romsey Chardonnay is the pride and joy of high profile Sommeliers Liam O’Brien and Matt Brooke.
This is the most consistently excellent fruit at the boys’ disposal. Intensely flavoured, balanced and articulate of the site, this is a top shelf Macedon Ranges Chardonnay.
It comes loaded with power, full of sulphide complexity and ripe fruit characters. It’s a Chardonnay for those who like a little flesh on the bones of their white.
What It Tastes Like
Ripe peach, oatmeal, struck match, a funky lees-derived character. Full powered Chardonnay here, it doesn’t pull back. It drives hard. It’s round and voluptuous in the mouth, but pulls tighter and leaner through the finish. Clear acidity ringing through the finish. High quality example from the region.
This vineyard is our pride and joy. The good child. The one that is easy to look after, is naturally balance and produces fruit that consistently powerful yet pure.
Extended hang time plus no malo sees this with plenty of flesh and weight after some time in bottle. The long but mild growing season offers it a thrillingly fresh finish. We believe in a classic interpretation of the Chardonnay grape – a wine that is full of flavour and body.

Australian Chardonnay is a seductive variety that comes in all shapes and sizes. From the toasty and voluptuous to the lean, flinty and minerally, there is a Chardonnay out there to suit everyone. Australia’s developing prowess with this variety has been marked by the international community with wine writers such as Jancis Robinson marvelling at the outstanding value to be had right across the country. The prestige brands of Margaret River offer wines of deep flavour and power, often crafting fuller-figured Chardonnay of outstanding quality. The cooler-climate wines from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and the like are more focused and linear, building complexity around a backbone of pristine acidity. Whatever your preference, there is an Australian Chardonnay to enchant all comers.
