About the Wine
Fresh and complex, Dominique Portet has released another beautiful Yarra Chardy. Actually son Ben Portet, is now the main winemaking influence!
Plenty of zinging citrus and grapefruit characters, as well as some richer melon and nectarine notes.
A little new oak, a little time on lees, no little flavour...
About Dominique Portet
Dominique Portet, quite simply, is international winemaking royalty. From a winemaking family that stretches back 10 generations in Bordeaux, his father Andre Portet was régisseur (vineyard and winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.
He is one of the original “Flying Winemakers”, having scoured the world in search of new and interesting exploits in wine which eventually lead him to the Yarra Valley. Here Portet found “... wines with a fragrance and structure reminiscent of the wines of Bordeaux. The Yarra has a charm and a beauty that engulfs you, and its wines are worldly” and chose this as his home away from home.
