About The Wine
There are Chardonnays built for contemplation, there are Chardonnays built for maturing long-term, there are Chardonnays that just don't taste like Chardonnay, and then there are Chardonnays like this that make you want to up-end the bottle in one gulp.
Jared Dixon has knocked out a beauty here. It's a full, luscious Chardonnay with ripe fruit flavours and plenty of flesh on the bones. I
t's a cuddly style made for people who want drinkability and amplitude of fruit in Chardonnay without having to spend a fortune.
It's made with minimal intervention, as is Jared's way. And it's just plain delicious.
About Jilly Wines
Jared Dixon is a lone ranger on his own mission in the New England wine region.
His wines are made from interesting varieties grown on unique vineyards, sites he classes as ‘undiscovered gems.’ His winemaking is extremely hands-off, allowing the full expression of the fruit to be the focus of every wine.
They are fun, don't take themselves too seriously and have a distinct energy about them.
Jared is one of Northern NSW's most exciting and impassioned young winemakers. Where he takes his idiosyncratic label from here is anyone's guess.
