- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Kate Goodman has worked for some of the biggest names in Australian wine, including powerhouses Dalwhinnie, Seppelts and Wirra Wirra. Now embarking on her own journey in the Yarra Valley, this Nikkal Chardonnay is the perfect entry into her exquisite winemaking style.
Sourced from vineyards in the Upper Yarra Valley, this is a full-flavoured yet medium weight Chardonnay with cool, clean lines and a little bit of funk. It’s classic, classy Yarra Chardonnay for under $30 and a deadset steal, given Kate’s pedigree.
What It Tastes Like
Classic Yarra Chardonnay on the leaner side. It smells of golden delicious apples, white peach and a little lick of sulphides. It’s packs a fair amount of punch at this price point. Lots of flavour but with crisp acidity in toe. Great stuff from Kate.

The Yarra Valley stands tall as one of the country’s finest cool-climate wine regions. Only a short jaunt from Melbourne, the Yarra has become a tourist hot-spot for its stunning scenery, high quality produce, and of course, as the home to some of the country’s most iconic wine producers. From the extraordinarily elegant Cabernets and Syrahs that populate the ‘Valley floor’, to the precise and complex versions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that hail from the higher climes of the Yarra, this region is diverse and in a state of change. As temperatures rise and phylloxera infiltrates each pocket of the Yarra Valley, the range of alternative varieties from continental Europe is sure to increase to create a more colourful picture of the region. The Yarra embodies so much of what is great about the modern Australian wine scene.
Australian Chardonnay is a seductive variety that comes in all shapes and sizes. From the toasty and voluptuous to the lean, flinty and minerally, there is a Chardonnay out there to suit everyone. Australia’s developing prowess with this variety has been marked by the international community with wine writers such as Jancis Robinson marvelling at the outstanding value to be had right across the country. The prestige brands of Margaret River offer wines of deep flavour and power, often crafting fuller-figured Chardonnay of outstanding quality. The cooler-climate wines from the Yarra Valley, Tasmania and the like are more focused and linear, building complexity around a backbone of pristine acidity. Whatever your preference, there is an Australian Chardonnay to enchant all comers.
