Rochford Reserve 'Dans les Bois' Chardonnay 2015
Dans les Bois translates to 'in the woods' referring to bushland at the base of this vineyard site.
Austere, some minerality, nutty, butter cream. The wine spent ten months on lees in French oak (30% new). Some malo peeks through. The generous delivery and beautiful balance cannot be denied. Finishing with great length and persistence, I'd happily go back time and time again.
Will cellar eight to ten years but drinking well now.
Region: Yarra Valley
