Green Point Chardonnay Yarra Valley 2006
Green Point was established by the Champagne house Moët & Chandon over 20 years ago in the Yarra Valley, in the southeastern state of Victoria. Cool ocean breezes create ideal conditions for the grapes to develop ripe fruit flavors, while retaining their elegance, finesse, and complexity.

External Reviews for Green Point Chardonnay Yarra Valley
The Chardonnay shows typical Yarra Valley varietal characters of white peach, melon and custard apple with citrus highlights. Fermentation on grape solids, the use of wild yeasts and MLF add complexity to the primary fruit characters. The stirring of yeast lees in barrel adds creaminess to the mid-palate, while maturation in new French Oak barriques contributes spice, roasted nuts and vanilla notes.
