Description

Our Polo Range pays testament to the family’s long held association with the sport of Polo. This 2018 Chardonnay is bright and crunchy - with a palate of fresh green apples and zesty lemon citrus. Delicate oak lingers on the finish, giving complexity and a hint of richness.

Winemaking Notes

This wine comprises of a 50/50 blend of two components; a parcel which underwent cool, stainless steel fermentation and a portion that was aged in French barriques. The parcel fermented in tank contributes fresh, clean citrus driven notes, while the barrel fermented component gives oak, texture and mouth fill.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2018 presented enormously favorable conditions for growers in the Yarra Valley. December through to February saw stretches of warm days, devoid of harsh heat spikes or patches of rain. Cool nights allowed the grapes to retain acidity, leading to generous yields of healthy fruit. Consequently, harvest was quite compressed, resulting in a shorter than average vintage duration.

Fruit for this wine was sourced from premium Yarra Valley sites. A portion from the cooler, higher lying sites of Seville contributes greater minerality, while the Coldstream component gives more generosity and richness of fruit.

Food Pairing

Grilled haloumi, avocado, pickled red onion, lime, sourdough toasts.
