Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2016
Made with the same exacting standards as our own estate grown Chardonnay, the Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2016 is forward, lively and balanced.
Sourced from vineyards in Upper Yarra, namely Maccesfield and Woori Yallock. The Woori Yallock component gives some mid palate weight, whilst the Maccesfield provides finesse and the long acid drive.

"Depending on how you look at things, you might prefer this over the Gippsland, or you might not. I tasted it over a couple of days, though admittedly, I got side tracked in between. White peach, citrus, a little gloss along with appropriate levels of savoury and flinty bits. Be mindful not to chill it too much; it’s much better cool.
Anyway, a wine of considerable finesse and subtlety – which is pretty much what Yarra Chardonnay is all about. Quiet confidence. And all for about $16? Chablis styling, you may say, though likely better than anything you’d get at twice the price. Will build and improve with some bottle age." 91 Points The Wine Front
