About

This Chardonnay comes from the iconic Tarraford vineyard in the Yarra Valley. Being in a sheltered valley the Tarraford vineyard has a distinctly cooler microclimate than its neighbouring sites. This makes for great Chardonnay production, especially in warmer, shorter vintages such as 2016.

The 2016 has a little more flesh and weight than previous releases. It’s a rounded, voluminous Chardonnay with excellent balance and offers more upfront fruit than the structural 2015.

This is a must-have for any lover of Yarra Valley Chardonnay.

What It Tastes Like

Some more flesh on the bones for Tarraford this year. Opens with nutty scents, nougat, hazelnut, yellow peach. It fills the mouth with luscious Chardonnay fruit, some honey and grilled stone fruit. Voluptuous Chardonnay in a Yarra Valley context.
