This has so much going for it. Delicious, is the first thing, but complexity, interest and vitality too... Love it.
About The Wine
Fleet is crafting some really exciting wines from all around southern Victoria, and this is surely one of their finest.
It's Chardonnay from the Cordillera Vineyard in the cooler climes of the Upper Yarra Valley. Old neutral oak, wild ferment and no additions save for a small amount of sulphur at bottling, this is a natural wine with real class and drive. 'Cool' feeling but still power-packed!
This is a brilliant wine and a great way to explore modern Australian Chardonnay.
About Fleet Wines
Fleet Wines is the culmination of 30 years of combined experience in wine hospitality for husband and wife duo Justin and Lisa Jenkins.
They have approached their label with an eye to crafting contemporary, elegant wines that slip neatly into the modern zeitgeist of Australian food and wine culture.
They source their fruit from Gippsland, Mornington Peninsula and the Yarra Valley with an increasing amount being farmed by them personally. With plenty of great press coming their way in a relatively short time, they are one young Victorian label that you'd do well to keep a close eye on.
