About

If you are going to make Beechworth Chardonnay, it is fair to say the bar has been set high. Names like Giaconda, Savaterre and Sorrenberg have set the standard for the region and they are some big shoes to fill. Tessa Brown and Jeremy Schmolzer form one of Beechworth's most exciting emerging wineries. Their 2016 Chardonnay is a killer drop and a dead-set bargain. This Chardonnay comes from the vineyard directly across the road from their own block of fledgeling vines way up in the high country behind Beechworth. It is a beautiful site. The fruit is treated delicately; predominantly older oak, all natural ferments, malo only happens if it wants too. Nothing about this wine feels forced, it feels like it was nurtured into being. If this is the next generation of Beechworth Chardonnay, there's a bright future ahead for the region.

What it Tastes Like

This is singing. A medium-bodied, elegant Beechworth Chardonnay here from Tessa and Jeremy. Ripe yellow peach, the delicate spice of the oak folded gently throughout the fruit, minerality in the core. Takes a line and holds it through the mouth delivering ample flavour with quiet restraint. It's balanced just so. Great release. Drinking beautifully now and will continue to improve.
