Rising Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2017

Our Price: $24.99 / bottle
(RRP $30.00)

Case: 6 bottles

The Chardonnay is farmed at two vineyards. The first is the Upper Ngumby vineyard near Yarra Glen at the base of Christmas Hills. The south-east aspect and grey-loam soils of this location bring a balance of poise and power to the wine. The second vineyard is Rising Vineyard, deep within the Christmas Hills. The gravelly soil of this vineyard lends minerality and restraint to the wine.

  • The Chardonnay is farmed at two vineyards. The first is the Upper Ngumby vineyard near Yarra Glen at the base of Christmas Hills. The south-east aspect and grey-loam soils of this location bring a balance of poise and power to the wine. The second vineyard is Rising Vineyard, deep within the Christmas Hills. The gravelly soil of this vineyard lends minerality and restraint to the wine. The grapes were hand-picked and the entire, uncrushed bunches were pressed and the juice transferred to French oak barrels for natural fermentation. The Rising Vineyard component of this wine was allowed to complete malolactic fermentation and there was a small amount of barrel stirring to the Upper Ngumby parcel. The two wines were aged on lees in barrel until late spring, about 9 months in total, then blended, filtered and bottled at the beginning of summer 2017
