The 2016 vintage was a great year for this stunning wine!
The vineyards of Seville Estate are located in the cooler, southern regions of the Yarra Valley. As a result, this Chardonnay style is crisper, tighter in structure with citrus fruit characters. This is 100% Estate grown Chardonnay.
The 2016 vintage was a great year that produced astounding wines across all varieties with good quantities. Great quality and quantity has not been seen in the Yarra Valley for some years and was gladly welcomed by the industry including the growers and accountants!
Tasting Notes: The wine is pale yellow with a clear hue. Beautiful aromas of white flowers and stone fruits encased with a flinty lees reduction. The palate is focused and pure with bright melon fruits, sweet spice and a toasted almond oak complexity. The acidity is fine with a lime sorbet like flavour. An elegant and focused style that will age gracefully. Drink 2017 – 2021
Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley
Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
