2019 Fleet 'Macclesfield' Chardonnay
The 2019 ‘White Label’ Chardonnay from Macclesfield in the Upper Yarra Valley is a deliciously textural wine that offers an array of orchid fruits; green apple and nashi pear, and top notes of white flowers, and flinty, wet stone character. The ancient red volcanic soils situated in this cooler part of the Yarra Valley give depth, structure and power to this white.
Bright pale lemon colour, floral notes, nashi pear, flinty core. Textural palate, that builds in the glass, grilled hazelnuts, with fine-boned acidity weaving throughout.
Where: Yarra Valley
How: Drink now, with a decant or cellar for 5-10 years
