Winemaking 

Crafted from select parcels of estate-grown fruit, the Yering Station Village Chardonnay 2018 undergoes careful vinification to preserve the unique characteristics of the Yarra Valley terroir. The grapes are gently pressed to extract pure juice, which is then fermented in French oak barrels to impart subtle layers of complexity and enhance the wine’s texture. Partial malolactic fermentation softens the acidity, contributing to its velvety mouthfeel and long aging potential.

Food Pairing:

Versatile and expressive, this Chardonnay pairs beautifully with a wide range of dishes. Its vibrant acidity complements seafood such as grilled lobster or pan-seared scallops, while its creamy texture stands up to creamy pastas and risottos. For a delightful contrast, try it with roasted chicken drizzled with a lemon butter sauce or a selection of mild cheeses.

In conclusion, the Yering Station Village Chardonnay 2018 is a true expression of the Yarra Valley’s cool climate and meticulous winemaking tradition. With its vibrant fruit flavors, balanced acidity, and lingering finish, it captivates the senses and exemplifies the pinnacle of Australian Chardonnay craftsmanship. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with fine cuisine, this wine promises a memorable drinking experience that showcases both elegance and complexity.
