About

Piano Piano is located on the ‘Golden Mile’ of Beechworth. Marc Scalzo’s Chardonnay vineyard is located right next door to the famed Giaconda site.

Giaconda owner Rick Kinzbrunner has influenced the way Marc tackles this wine with an eye on building power and complexity throughout the winemaking process.

Marc makes his Chardonnay with simplicity and precision. The berries are cooled and then pressed as whole bunches immediately. The pressings go to the newest and best French oak, the free run to the older oak. It’s powerful, luscious Chardonnay and oh so delicious.

It’s wines like this that saw him nominated for Gourmet Traveller Wine’s Winemaker of the Year in 2016.

What It Tastes Like

Big whiff of powerful Beechworth fruit. It’s got funk and attitude, with leesy/sulphide characters mingling amongst the ripe golden fruit. French oak folded perfectly into the wine, lending spice and chew. Acidity glistens. Beechworth Chardonnay writ large.
