Description

A slightly fuller and more open expression of our site, reflecting the relative generosity of the vintage, this year’s Chardonnay opens with aromas of ripe nectarine, vanilla and poached pear. Complex and controlled, there’s a sense of power that slowly emerges, showing hints of ripe melon, honeycomb and lemon curd. The palate displays richness and power, within a tight framework of great persistence and length. As always there’s purity and restraint, but this year the wine commands a little more centre-stage attention, showing great savoury drive and stunning length as it dances across the palate. A complex and beautiful wine, and a real standout this year. – Sandra de Pury

Hand-picked fruit, destemmed and crushed aged in French barrels (30% new) for 11 months with 30% mlf. Always a flavoursome, fuller-bodied Chardonnay with stone fruit, figs and leesy, creamy notes. Yet it keeps a well-formed frame with bright acidity helping. 95 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion August 2018

Another very exotic white from Yeringberg, which remains focused and dialled-in. Dried pineapple is the main attraction on the nose, as well as apple pastries, red grapefruit, passion fruit and praline. An acutely smoky undertone, too. Round and opulent on the palate, but it is still very much in check. This is all thanks to a refreshing layer of acidity through the mid-palate, carrying this long through the finish. Drink now. Screw cap. 94 points. Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com June 2018
