Background

Our Over the Shoulder wines are great examples of wines that typify varietal characteristics of the Yarra Valley. Wines which are fresh, vibrant and medium bodied.

Tasting Notes

Medium straw with a pale bright hue. Ripe stone fruit - nectarine, white peach, some baby pine notes. Then, almond and hazelnut meal, grilled lime and a light lees/yeast character. This is rich and mouth filling, the stone fruit characters taking centre stage over the barrel ferment characters, the line of lime citrus acidity pulling the wine back into line giving just enough tension and refreshment to balance the inherent richness and texture of the wine.

Vineyard Notes

This Chardonnay was sourced from high quality vineyards in Coldstream, Dixons Creek and Gruyere.

Winemaker's Notes

Traditional methods such as whole bunch pressing, fermentation in oak casks and lees ageing have been used to craft this wine.

Vintage Notes

A very long, cool growing season with low crops and abundant rainfall has resulted in wines with outstanding aromatic qualities and strong varietal definition.
