More Information

“Lots of zest appeal here, taking off with all manner of citrus flavours and lemon blossom florals too.  There's texture with some lees influence imparting grilled nuts and creamy curd.  A shapely wine with soft acidity gently leading it to the finishing line.”  92 points, Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion

“Upper Yarra Chardonnay. Single vineyard. Made by Franco D’Anna.  It’s racy in style but it has the texture, complexity and length to pull it off.  It tastes of lemon curd and sprays of fragrant herbs, though nectarine and cedar push through too.  I don’t overtly see flint here but it’s suggestive of it; it’s a vibe thing.  There’s also a mineral water note, amongst it all, which works beautifully.  We are now a couple of years from this wine’s vintage but it still feels as though it’s a couple of years from really being ready to drink at its best, though of course there’s enjoyment to be had now.  Value once again is very high.”  92+ points, Campbell Mattinson, WineFront

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!
