Description

Coombe Chardonnay is one of our flagship wines and one for which we are most renowned. Pale straw in colour this Chardonnay has a generously perfumed nose. Ripe Meyer lemons and yellow peaches with a hint of crème brulee and butterscotch. The palate has a rich concentration with a medium long finish of elegance and finesse.

 Winemaking Notes

The entirety of these Chardonnay blocks were handpicked and whole bunch pressed before being racked to barriques. The wine was matured in a combination of 20% new and 80% one and two year old French oak for a period of 10 months.

Fruit for this wine was selected from our Mendoza and Penfolds 58 clone blocks, both grown on the flat and lower lying blocks of the Coombe Farm Estate. The clones are intensely flavoured due to their small berries and maintain a good level of acidity in even the warmest of years.

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 baby vegetables, Smoked yogurt, coriander, harissa and
toasted seeds.
