Chardonnay from Victoria is amongst some of the most exciting on Earth. Dubbed the Burgundy of the New World thanks to its climatic similarities with the iconic French wine region, Victoria produces a stylistic kaleidoscope of this noble grape, ranging from the lean and statuesque to the round and sensuous. Awarded 95 points by Halliday Wine Companion, this glittering jewel from Geelong’s Clyde Park falls toward the latter camp; you can taste a gentle touch of new French oak in its indulgent bites of crème brûlée and toasted almond — and in the luscious pops of peach and nectarine, you can feel the generous warmth of the sun beating down on the vines at the estate, home to a truly inspiring sustainability operation that aims to recycle and upcycle wherever possible, as well as to reduce Clyde Park’s contribution to landfill.
Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed to French puncheons and hogsheads (25% new), minimal stirring, a small amount of mlf, remained on lees for 9 months with little intervention. There's no question that the depth and richness of the fruit is akin to that of Beechworth, not Yarra Valley, and even less the Mornington Peninsula. It's a wine that marches to the tune of its big bass drum. Made by Robin Brockett.
