About The Wine
The thing that stands out about the Out Of Step range is the complete lack of pretension in the wines.
This 2016 Chardonnay from the Denton View vineyard in the Yarra is just that. It is unadorned by winemaking tricks - just a fresh and fleshy example of Yarra Chardonnay.
The fruit, the star. The vintage (small production and warmer which adds a little extra ripeness to the fruit) on display.
Yarra Chardonnay is some of our favourite in the country and minimalist versions like this are the reason why.
About The Producer
Dave Chatfield is the man behind the Out Of Step project.
After working vineyards in the Yarra Valley for years, Dave decided it was time to start his own thing.
The philosophy behind his wines: “To be great it must be real, expressive & honest.”
The wines are made with very little tinkering in the winery, allowing the great vineyards he sources fruit from to shine.
Based in the Yarra Valley, but sourcing fruit from various parts of Victoria, Out Of Step is forging a reputation for serious, eye-catching wines at a great price.
