THE VARIETY

Chardonnay

With roots that stem back to the Burgundy region in France, Chardonnay  is often regarded as  the greatest and most versatile white wine in the world. Now grown in a large array of climates, the varietal’s expression varies greatly, depending on the terrier. Cooler climates like Chablis create a lighter bodied wine with citrus notes and subtle minerality. Warmer climates, on the other hand, like Margaret River produce more generous and tropical wines. Seafood is a popular pairing. But Chardonnay also goes beautifully with warm and cold salads, cheese boards and white meats.

THE REGION

Yarra Valley

The Yarra Valley was Victoria's first wine growing district with a history stretching back 170 years. Today the region is recognised as one of Australia's foremost cool climate regions. Such a climate, coupled with sandy loam and rocky clay sub-soil, the region makes classic styles from a wide range of varieties, like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz.
