Description

Beautifully poised, this Tribute chardonnay shows notes of zesty lemon lime citrus curd and lanolin moving into the white stone fruits and almond kernel with hints of flint.  The palate is taut but elegant with creamy acidity that will give this beautiful wine longevity.

The 2019 Tribute Chardonnay is drinking well now and will continue to drink well for at least another 10 to 15 years.

Winemaking Notes

100% clone Mendoza Chardonnay, hand harvested and whole bunch pressed before being racked to barriques. The wine was matured in a combination of 35% new and 65% one and two-year old oak for a period of 11 months.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2019 presented enormously favourable conditions for growers in the Yarra Valley. Following a cold winter, bud-burst was a little later than normal. Early spring conditions were cool and very dry but in both November and December we experienced excellent rainfall. With replenished soil moisture we were well set up for both generous yields and the warm to hot months of January and February. Harvest days were perfect with uninterrupted picking completed by mid-March.

Food Pairing

Roasted barramundi fillet, sweet corn, clams, purslane and cherry tomatoes
