A top of the range Chardonnay from Phil Sexton and Steve Flamstead, refinement and complexity personified. 2008 was a reasonably warm year with very little water around the Yarra valley. It was a season all about timing. The fruit for this biodynamic wine was picked before the heat wave in late February. Adequate water supply in Tarraford’s two dams allowed the canopy to shade the fruit from intense sunlight, leading to crisp citrus flavours and a great acid structure.

TASTING NOTES
The Fruity nose of lemons, limes and granny smith apple skins gives way to dried pears and toasted fresh coconut. This Chardonnay was not fined as citrus zest with pink grapefruit flavours enhance the racy acidity and great length on the finish.

REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Lime yellow straw; very Burgundian nose this – butterscotch but with some limes and lemon behind; good delicacy on the palate; attractive bite at the end. No MLF here to preserve the acid and zest. 90+/100.” – Wine, Words and Vidoetape
