2017 DCB Chardonnay

Yarra Valley, VIC

A lovely Chardonnay that delivers complexity and quiet confidence rarely seen at this price point.


Lively, quietly complex and delicious wine.

About The Wine

The Yarra Valley is pretty flush with good Chardonnay at the moment.

The region is in a purple patch and has been lauded internationally for being the engine room of the Australian Chardonnay revival. There are plenty of options if you are looking to spend $40 and above, and likely you will be pleased with your choice, but finding a Yarra Chardonnay at around $20 that still gives you that rush can be a much trickier proposition.

With Chris Bendle's experience winemaking not only at Hoddles Creek but in Tasmania, NZ and the States, he is no slouch when it comes to producing quality Chardonnay.

For under $25 a bottle, this Chardonnay has no right being this delicious at this price.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Attractive wine from the get-go, nicely balanced, flavoursome, pure-feeling, crisp and refreshing. Opens with green apple, flinty notes, some lemon soap character, a touch of yoghurt character. Palate is lean and lively but imbued with ‘true’ chardonnay flavours. More of the flint and a touch of nuttiness too. Lively, quetly complex and delicious wine." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
