About

The Gembrook Hill Chardonnay is not released every vintage. Oft times winemakers Andrew Marks and Timo Mayer opt to make a vintage Blanc de Blanc with the estate grown Chardonnay.

When they do release a table wine, it’s invariably very, very good. With 2016 one of the earliest vintages on record for this estate, the Chardonnay seemed to warrant a table wine release. It sells like hot cakes and is extremely limited.

This is set to be one of the Yarra Valley’s best premium Chardonnay releases from 2016. Mike Bennie giving it an excellent 95 points and remarking, “This is in a stellar zone… Glorious drinking.”

Allocations are tight. Get in fast.

What It Tastes Like

“I like this very much. This is in a stellar zone. Just a stunning wine. Beautiful. Effortless. Pristine in its expression. Measure and balance and vibrancy. Scents of kaffir lime leaf, green herbs, lime juice, green melon, almond paste – enticing and fresh with a whiff of savouriness. A mineral water wash under citrus oil, mouthwatering green pear, a baby’s grip of oak flavour and chewiness in texture, but the feel overall is crisp as the bite of a young apple. It’s so even, cool, inwardly concentrated but doesn’t break a sweat as it does its glide across the palate. Glorious drinking.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
