2014 Reserve Chardonnay

Racked directly to barrel after whole-bunch pressing, this wine is the purest expression of TarraWarra Chardonnay. Made without yeast or acid addition, the fruit batches from each block are kept entirely separate in barrel over the 10 months in oak. It is crossflow filtered without fining before bottling at the Estate.

A wine of very fine complexity it displays fig and white peach aromas. It has the length that is the hallmark of our Chardonnay.  A wine to drink and enjoy now or cellar for 10 or more years.

Vine age & features: The fruit is all selected from our original vineyard planted in 1983.

Site selection: The heritage blocks of B and C have a north-west aspect and represent a perfect site for Chardonnay. The two blocks have deep soils and a cool micro-climate.

Vintage notes: 2014 was one of the warmer years in the Yarra Valley, although cool nights during ripening allowed for retention of acid and fine flavor development. Yields were much lower than normal, with these older vines yielding 4.5 tonnes per hectare. Precise canopy management resulted in fruit in perfect condition at harvest.

REGAN DREW, Vino Notebook, 20 Jul 2016
Peach stone fruit and kernel, ripe figs, cashew butter, lemon cream pie and smoky sulfides to pique the interest. Fullness through the mouth feel, whilst just creamy peach slices ride the lemon/grapefruit crystal acidity. The quality of the wine-making from the vintage showing in texture over alcohol content. Potential for a few years ageing.
