About

About The Wine

Dave Bicknell is one of Australia's most masterful exponents of Chardonnay.

His 2015 Bicknell FC Chardonnay was grown on a single vineyard in the upper reaches of the Yarra Valley, a site which is now leased by Dave and wife Nicky. In classic Bicknell style, MLF was prevented in this wine, Dave looking for the max amount of tension to be retained in this Chardonnay.

The impeccable fruit yielded by the 2015 vintage on full display - pure and unadulterated.

Tightly wound and gloriously complex, this is one of the best value premium Chardonnays from the 2015 vintage in the Yarra Valley.

About Bicknell FC

With the title as James Halliday's Best New Winery in 2016 and a swathe of whopping reviews, Bicknell FC is one of the most exciting new producers in the country.

Led by the husband-and-wife team of David Bicknell and Nicole Harris, Bicknell FC's focus is entirely on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - both sourced from premium vineyards in the Yarra Valley.

Dave and Nicole have their own vineyard which has become the focal point of the brand. Expect big things in their future.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

White peach, puff of smoke, hint of oyster shell. Laser focused through the mouth. Cuts a clean line on glassy acidity with licks of lees funk lapping along the way. Has flavour and concentration but it's controlled the whole way through. Great stuff. Excellent Yarra Chardonnay here. - Different Drop Wine Team
