2019 Willowlake Yarra Valley Chardonnay

by Wheeler Wines View producer profile
Made using fruit sourced from the highly esteemed Willowlake Vineyard, a gentle North facing slope grown on grey volcanic soils. Hand-picked in early March, Chardonnay fruit is whole bunch pressed to tank to settle for 24 hours. Following a light racking, juice is naturally fermented in a combination of 50% stainless steel and 50% neutral French barriques. Rested on fine lees for 9 months with malo-lactic fermentation naturally occurring in most barrels as well as the tank component. Bottled in January 2020, unfined and unfiltered. “A little cloudy, but fine. Has a Japanese ginger thing over white peach, green pear, and yuzu. Saline and quite umami, lemon zest and white pepper, an almond cream flavour cut with tangy citrus acidity, fine dusty texture, and a salted oatmeal finish offering a little tingle, and good length. Quirky, but good.” 93 pts – Gary Walsh – The Wine Front – August 2020.
