Yarra Valley Chardonnay, Journey Wines, 75cl

£14.50

Journey Wines are a reflection not only of the unique vineyard sites on which the grapes were grown, but also of the journey of winemaker Damian North.

Damian’s journey into the world of wine began working as a sommelier at landmark Sydney restaurants like the original Tetsuya’s in Rozelle and Pier at Rose Bay. Deciding that his future lay in the intriguing world of wine, he studied winemaking at Charles Sturt University and moved to the Yarra Valley where he spent a number of years as assistant winemaker at TarraWarra Estate.

The 2013 Journey Wines Yarra Valley Chardonnay has a bright straw colour. Reflecting the warmer vintage, the nose has intense aromas of honeysuckle, freshly cut pineapple and nectarine. The seamless palate is layered with flavours of white stone fruit, almond meal and preserved lemon. Intensity of flavour is complemented by the harmonious integration of oak and balanced by a line of natural acidity.

  Expert reviews

Whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast-fermented in French oak (25% new), mlf prevented, with 10 months maturation, briefly stirred. A tightly wrought style with a strong minerally acid backbone, and will develop slowly, right now not ready to do business - but don't despair.

93 points.     Drink by 2025.     Halliday Wine Companion 2016.
