Allevare Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2023

$ 41.00 incl. GST


Grown by Denton Vineyard on an isolated hill on the North side of the Yarra River, The Hill is a granite ‘plug’ from the Denovian age, sitting above the surrounding softer sandstones and siltstones from the valley. P58 clone Chardonnay. Whole bunch pressed then transferred to French oak for barrel fermentation with 25% new Chassin oak. Partial malolactic fermentation. Left on full lees for 10 months, racked, settled then bottled.

Lemon oil and wet stones on the nose, oak present but well integrated.  Those familiar with the 2022 will find this fuller and fleshier in the mouth; white peaches, nougat, lemon rind and pith, finishing with roasted nuts.  Keeps a taut acid spine, will be a style with broad appeal.
