2015 Yer­ing Sta­tion Chardon­nay

Halliday - - Promotion - $40, yer­ing.com @yer­ingsta­tion

Wine­maker: Willy Lunn

This wine brims with zippy cit­rus fruits, a creamy mid-palate and warm vanillin spice. Fresh and com­plex, it has a lovely weight with a line of fine acid­ity that of­fers bal­ance and length.

What de­fines your style of chardon­nay?

This chardon­nay’s essence is of site and place, bring­ing the vineyard to the glass: clas­sic Yarra Val­ley min­er­al­ity, a grape­fruit core, over­laid with sub­tle oak spices. The palate is com­plex and struc­tured, but main­tains our el­e­gant, seam­less style.

What tech­niques do you use for this wine?

Hand-picked at op­ti­mal ripeness, the grapes were gently pressed, only keep­ing the heart-run of the berries. This wine was ma­tured for 11 months with­out mal­o­lac­tic fer­men­ta­tion and spent 12 months in bot­tle be­fore re­lease. It was also bar­rel fer­mented in French pun­cheons and lees stirred.
