Chris Catlow is one of Beechworth’s most promising young winemakers. The level of detail applied his exploration of Chardonnay is exceptional. The 2015 Sentio Yarra Valley Chardonnay is a wine of intensity and extreme precision. The fruit is sourced from the famous Lusatia Park vineyard in the Yarra Valley. Chris chooses to pick this fruit a little later than many other winemakers from the region, looking for full flavour development with acid retention before the fruit comes off. This is straight up basket pressed as whole bunches, the fruit as the soloist, oak playing second fiddle. The length is wonderful. The expression is pure. Campbell Mattinson labelled it, "Fine fruit; fine style; fine drinking." Strap yourself in, this is one of the best examples of Yarra Chardonnay we have seen this year.

What it Tastes Like

So good. So lean and focused like a long distance runner. Whiffs of cap guns, spicy oak, limes and nectarine. Pitched perfectly. Attacks the mouth like a whip being cracked but with a remarkable generosity of flavour in toe. Clean, squeaky acid cinches in the fruit. It's wound tight but gee wizz it flows smooth. Stunning Chardonnay.
