Vineyards in the Upper Yarra Valley and Whitlands Plateau bring powerful fruit elements to Chandon Blanc de Blancs 2011, while the Strathbogie Ranges and Tasmanian components deliver finer acidity and palate length. The Yarra Valley floor contributes further complexity and another fruit dimension into the blend.

Winery Tasting Notes
On opening the wine presents with pale colour and extremely fine bead and mousse.
Reductive aromas of gunflint and walnut open to green apple, pear and jasmine florals. These flow gently into fresh cut fennel and subtle autolytic aromas of fresh sourdough.
The palate echoes the same orchard fruits, fresh figs and florals of the nose, with yeast elements in the background. Zesty, long, fine acidity is balanced with subtle bottle age characters and an overall sense of poise.
Vietnamese pulled pork roll; Yarra Valley soft goat’s cheese and sourdough toasts; WA marron cooked with a little butter.
