2011 Yarraloch Chardonnay

Chris Shanahan
Variety Chardonnay
WINERY Yarraloch
RRP 29

Yarraloch reveals facets of the winemaker's art as well as the natural richness of chardonnay and the racy acidity of the cold vintage. The winemaker thumbprint shows in a funky aroma and flavour (a result of natural fermentation and maturation on yeast lees in oak) cutting through the grapefruit and just-ripe nectarine varietal character. Together, the funky and varietal flavours and racy acidity create a literally mouth-watering sensation in a silky-textured dry white.
