Yarra Edge Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017


I love receiving emails from wineries I've never heard of. Viticulturalist Lucas Hoorn (formally Hoodles Creek and Levantine Hill) at Yarra Edge was kind enough to get in touch and send me his latest releases - and I like what I see. This Chardonnay ticks the boxes - a little beauty.

Established in 1983, just under two acres are on site which is close planted with a northerly aspect. The wines are contract made by the talented Dylan McMahon.

Scents of lemonade and crumble. Some yellow flowers too. A wine which is soft and Lacey.  Lots of lemons and citrusy drive envelop the mouth. Whipped cream drives through the middle in a harmonious fashion.  A fine spice tickle to close with a moreish tang too which I find appealing. I'd have a glass for sure.

Drink now to five years.
