The 2016 Mandala Yarra Valley Chardonnay Story

Chardonnay is the most widely planted white wine grape in the world, and here in the Yarra Valley it is classed as the premium variety. The typically cool climate in the valley balances out hot days with cool crisp nights, allowing the grapes to flourish and produce that fine acidic zest Chardonnay lovers adore. Charles' take on his Estate Chardonnay has purposely moved away from the characteristic over-oaked flavouring, to a "new style" which focuses on subtle and integrated oak to deliver texture, weight and an enjoyable structure.

Tasting Notes

Fresh aromas of crisp lime entwine with hints of cashew and brioche, finishing with flinty oyster-shell characters. A creamy mid-palate sits well with citrus and subtle stone fruit flavours, balanced with seductive French oak, delighting on a tight finish. Cellaring potential of 5-8 years. 12.3% Alc/Vol.
