About

This is the 'entry level' Chardonnay, grown on the younger vines planted on the Hillcrest estate back in 2000 and 2005. It took more than 5 years for this exemplary vineyard to produce a crop, but it was worth the wait. Dry grown and unfertilised, the patience of David and Tanya Bryant has paid dividends, the intensity of this relatively young vine fruit is simply outstanding. The 2015 Village Chardonnay is richly flavoured and packed with charisma. Gary Walsh commenting "Gee, I like this wine, but I’d give it a year to settle into bottle." in his 93+ point review. Value for money wise, this is one of the most impressive Chardonnays in the Yarra Valley.

What it Tastes Like

"Golden colour. Nectarine, menthol, cedar, oatmeal and roast honey chicken. Medium weight, but with an intensity of an almost savage nature, firm acidity, stonefruit and oranges, chalk dust, and slighly raw-edged finish of excellent length. Gee, I like this wine, but I’d give it a year to settle into bottle." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
