Quick Overview

From two vineyards in Woori Yallock and Macclesfield, hand-picked, 90% whole-bunch pressed to barrel, 10% fermented on skins, 10% mlf, matured for 9 months on lees in French oak (15% new). Until the finish you think this is simply a good Yarra Valley chardonnay, then the power of the finish and aftertaste hits you.
Great stuff. 95 points James Halliday

Product Description

Vintage 2017 in the Yarra Valley was long, mild and well suited to our elegant, restrained fruit style. Chardonnay was a star in 2017 and we look forward to watching these wines unwind and build in bottled complexity.


Our fruit is all handpicked and sorted with a larger portion (95%) being whole bunch pressed, full solids run straight to barrel. The remaining fruit was destemmed and fermented on skins in small open pots for 5 days to add complexity and mouthfeel.


Once in barrel, the lightly sulphured juice is allowed to settle before fermentation kicks off with mostly wild yeast. Batonnage is practised regularly during the cooler months to build further layers and the wine remains on gross lees for the entire time in oak (9 months). We avoid MLF and prefer to ‘walk a bright acid line’ keeping our Chardonnay pure, fresh and linear - allowing it to evolve in bottle over time.


The 2017 Rouleur Chardonnay opens with white nectarine, lemon barley fragrance, a hint of lees and complex sulfides. The palate is tangy with a core of mineral acid balanced by grapefruit citrus and white fleshed stone fruits. There’s curd, and just a lick of new oak adding extra layers behind fine fruit.
