About The Wine
The Domaine Epis Chardonnay is a wine of impressive intensity and power.
It's a Chardonnay that is unafraid to be bold yet holds incredible line through the mouth.
Winemaker Alec Epis crafts this with traditional Burgundian-inspired winemaking techniques. It is matured on lees in top-class French oak for one year before being bottled.
A wine with stunning texture and mouthfeel, this is a glorious example of cool-climate Chardonnay. Up there with anything produced in the Macdeon Ranges.
About Domaine Epis
Former Essendon great, Alec Epis, is the man behind the Domaine Epis label.
Alec runs two vineyards in the Macedon Ranges; one planted to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the other to Cabernet and Merlot.
The Epis wines have a cult-like following. These profound cool-climate wines are considered benchmarks of the Macedon Ranges alongside names like Bindi and Curly Flat.
Alec believes that no truly great wine can come from sub-par fruit. As such, Alec keeps his yields low and his fruit intense. These wines mature beautifully with time in the cellar. They make a great addition to the collection of any connoisseur of Australian fine wine.
