About The Wine
The Smiths Vineyard, one of the most historic in Beechworth, is now in the capable hands of Adrian Rodda.
His Cabernet blend from this block is a thing of beauty, and no surprise, this Chardonnay is a ripper as well. At 550m ASL, this site produces fine, classic Chardonnay of dazzling purity. Rodda has gotten his ducks in a row this year.
The Chardonnay is arguably his best to date from this vineyard and is an exquisite example of this iconic Victorian wine style.
