Leura Park Estate Limited Release Block 1 Chardonnay Hand Picked Reserve 2018
Runs the gamut of emotions from bright, lifted and lively to richness and depth. What more could you ask for in a chardonnay?
The Bellarine Peninsula’s maritime climate is a major influence on chardonnay style here, but so too the use of whole bunches, wild yeasts and 10 months in oak. The aim is to achieve complexity and it’s achieved in the range of flavours, textures and above all, structure. This single vineyard chardonnay has structure to burn. Grapefruit citrussy, almond meal, biscuit, spice and that ever-present steely acid crunch. Cellar for the long term.
