Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2006

Definitely a different chard enjoyed tonight, but never would have guessed it was 12 years old. This one had some slight evidence of butter, but mostly mineral rich. Stelvin capped wine. Finished a bit on the mineral-rich side. If this was a bottle of wine enjoyed at a steakhouse, it would be a really good accompaniment with a bone-in ribeye. — 23 days ago

Older Aussie chard! So cool. Not fully SauvBlanc like with its tropical explosion and acidity, but not fully chard like with butter and oak. A nice hybrid I suppose? Would have never guessed 12years old. Hard to describe aside from the mix of mango, fleshy fruit skins, oak, and lemon meringue.

Agreed @Shay A. Out of the wines we have been fortunate enough to taste this last month or so, with mad thanks to Dan, the ones that always are the hardest to reflect the pain seem to be the Australian chardonnays!


Reserve Chardonnay 2011

Oak Peach Grapefruit some butteriness. In a cooler wet year like 2011 the Whites show better than the Reds here. I have always loved Yarra Valley Whites and Reds but now really developing a taste for nearby Mornington Peninsula Wines particularly after our visit there last year. — 15 days ago

Giant Steps

Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2017

The Entry Level Chardonnay from Giant Steps in a very good vintage in the Yarra Valley. Smoky notes with some struck match. Oak comes through on the palate more than the bouquet with butterscotch flavours but not overdone. M minus acid with M Intensity. Drink up to 5 years. The individual paddock Chardonnays will be something special on this showing. — a month ago

Delightful red with typical characteristics sought after in Cabernet. Dark forest fruit, touch of bitter chocolate and savoury meats, with a hint of bell pepper and toastiness. Wonderful richness coating the mouth with near perfect balance of tannin and fruit. Bold well rounded masculine wine. — 19 days ago
