Overview

The Ingram Rd breed of Chardonnay is exciting, fresh, zesty and truly does the great grape variety known as Chardonnay justice. Gone are the days when you need a knife and fork to drink Chardonnay. Now, our Chardonnay is being made to reflect the subtle and complex fruit structure of this variety whilst maintaining a clean fresh finish on the palate.Our Ingram Rd Chardonnay is not like most inexpensive Chardonnays. Firstly it is made from our cool climate Yarra Valley Estate fruit, secondly small parcels are hand picked at harvest based on fruit flavours, thirdly it is 100% French oak fermented and matured and finally we utilize significant amounts of “wild” fermentation during the primary fermentation stage. This hand’s on approach, much of which relies on Mother Nature ensures that the fresh, complex, high quality Chardonnay fruit ends up in the bottle.

For those that think that they do not like Chardonnay, our Ingram Rd Chardonnay will open your taste buds up to the complex delights of what this great variety can taste like.

Expert Reviews

90 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion 2017 - 06 Oct 2016

Hand-picked and 100% barrel-fermented, it is rich and full-fruited without forgetting its Yarra Valley heritage of length; stone fruits are the drivers, citrus providing the acidity.
