Food Pairings for Yering Station Chardonnay Yarra Valley
Silky smooth, not overly oakey and sweet and not too acidic either. Subtle peach and melon flavours and slightly amber colour make this certainly one of the better Aussie Whites we have had for around the £10 mark. I like this area of Australia a lot, more so for the reds so thought giving a white a try and not disappointed at all.
The grapes for this delightful Chardonnay are sourced from the cool viticultural region of the Yarra Valley, north east of Melbourne. After destemming, the grapes are gently crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks for cooling and settling prior to fermentation in French oak barriques, 25% of which are new. There is no malolactic fermentation performed in order to retain the natural acidity formed in the cool climate ripened grapes, but the lees are stirred in barrel during its 11 months ageing. Bottling is with a light filtration and fining. The resulting wine is pale straw in colour with a pure and complex nose of flinty, minerally characters as well as citrus with some almond and spicy complexity. The palate is clean and fresh with well-integrated oak characters. Like the nose, the palate is quite minerally and shows great poise. Serve this beauty with chicken, rabbit, grilled fish.
