Quick Overview

It’s a juicy one this year, offering plenty of peach and pear flavour, a little oatmeal, cashew and cinnamon, but with a pink grapefruit tang. It’s flinty and spicy, a ball of flavour that pulls longer, and tighter on the finish. There’s a little struck match complexity and a whole lot more than a little in terms of enjoyment. It’s very good drinking already."

Product Description

To capture the vivid fruit flavors and beautiful balance, we hand-harvested the Chardonnay grapes in the cool morning hours. Following harvest, we allowed some time for skin contact to draw some phenolics, and chilled the fruit to 6?C. This was followed by a gentle pressing, with no enzyme addition. We fermented the grapes with minimal inoculated yeast to add layers of complexity and heighten vineyard expression. After an average of 7 days of fermentation at 18-21?C some of the wine (30%) was drawn off into oak and the remaining portion remained in Stainless Steel. Time was allowed on yeast lees with occasional stirring to give further complexity and smoothness. Following more than ten months of barrel aging (25% new oak), the wine was blended and bottled. Winemaker Franco D'Anna


For those who’ve tasted the entry-level Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Chardonnay, the expectations for this Estate release are surely high. The good news is that it delivers…emphatically. Intensity, texture, drive and integration. But above all length. It’s almost excessively persistent.


"I note that the RRP of the Pinot is now three dollars more than the Chardonnay.
