About The Wine
If you like Yarra Valley Chardonnay, we've got a live one for you here.
The fastidious hands of winemaker Shaun Crinion have put together a cracking Chardonnay under his Appellation label from the 2019 Yarra Valley vintage.
It's not often you find a focused, flavour packed, handmade Chardonnay for these dollars but that's exactly what Shaun has delivered. This is made using the same methodology as his premium single vineyard wines. No corners cut. The value is ridiculous.
It's a whole lot of wine crammed into the bottle at the price. This is a benchmark for 'entry-level' Chardonnay in the Yarra Valley and it's never available for long!
About Dappled Wines
Dappled owner/winemaker Shaun Crinion has a mountain of winemaking experience from around the globe, culminating with the establishment of a label all of his own.
Shaun's focus is on expressing the sub-regionality of the Yarra Valley through simply gorgeous Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and a growing range of experimental wines.
With the combination of Shaun's A-grade fruit from the Yarra's top growers and his precise, astute winemaking, the value on offer in the Dappled range is second to none.
He was James Halliday's Best New Winery in 2018. The wines have only stepped in quality since then though the modest pricing remains the same. Unsurprisingly, his wines sell out in short order each year. He's now regarded as one of the best small-scale producers in the modern Yarra Valley.
