About

The Rao is the top Chardonnay from the Domaine Simha portfolio. Impeccable fruit from a 40-year-old vineyard in the Derwent Valley of Tasmania was hand picked on a fruit day, it was whole-bunch pressed and sent to two new demi-muid to rest for 12 months on lees, then bottled without adjustment or filtering. This is a powerful Chardonnay, the fruit from these mature vines shining bright. Tasmanian precision acidity backed by deeply concentrated fruit. There's a wild edge here also, enough to keep you engaged and guessing to the last drop. Only 120 dozen made.

What it Tastes Like

Presence. Persistence. Personality. It's all here. It fires through the palate with a lone laser beam of acid. Loads of concentration. Sulphide funk, white flowers, ginger, grapefruit. It flies - searing, cleansing and flashing its way through a long and glorious finish. Tension held from front to back. It's very good and a little wild. Compelling Chardonnay of personality.
