Yering Station Chardonnay Yarra Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This lovely Chardonnay is partly femented in French oak barriques and stainless steel for 14-21 days. There is 9 months of ageing in French oak barriques (1-5 years old). To give the wine freshness, elegance and longevity, malo-lactic fermentation was not allowed. The resulting wine has great intensity on the nose with mineral notes, white nectarine and citrus flavours along with a creamy, nutty complexity. It is of medium weight with clean citrus fruit supported by well integrated French oak and balanced acidity.

A nice little wine from Victoria, easy on the wallet and "goes down great" - to coin a phrase. The nose is like a whiff of inexpensive floral perfume one might recall from close proximity with prepubescent teen-aged girls. On entry, there is the pleasant flavor of pear and apple - all in a slightly preserved state. The finish is medium with toasty vanilla. Good value. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival.

The nose displays aromas of melon, fig, pineapple and sweet oak characteristics with a hint of macadamia nut. The palate is rich with melon and a somewhat lemon acidity balancing the slightly creamy mouthfeel. The oak is subtly integrated, providing a lingering nuttiness and spice. Lovely.

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.
