Quick Overview


The winemaking: all fruit was hand-sorted in the vineyard and winery, then whole-bunch pressed, with the cloudy juice transferred to a mixture of 500-litre puncheons to ferment wild. The wines were matured on their lees in barrel for eight months before blending.


Barney’s wines have gotten finer and finer, and this is a terrific example. Plenty of pulpy fruit (nectarine, peach, citrus pith) but also loads of driven freshness and just enough complexity from the lees. Really first-rate Chard and terrific value to boot

Product Description

From a vintage that yielded particularly bright and fleshy wines, this is another top drawer, pristine Mornington Chardonnay from the Garagiste stable. As is customary, Le Stagiaire Chardonnay is drawn mostly from Garagiste’s Merricks vineyard, with the balance coming from Balnarring and Tuerong. Barney Flanders doesn't make these wines specifically for this label—all his ferments start out as potential single-vineyard wines, so the single-site wines are barrel selections, with the remaining wines bottled under Le Stagiaire. This gives us some idea of how this label is able over-deliver, year in year out.
