Overview

The Leydens Vale series of wines takes their name from John Leyden, one of the original land holders in the Pyrenees region of central / western Victoria in the 1890’s.

The Leydens Vale Reserve range represents the best parcels of estate grown fruit as selected by the winemaking team.

Chardonnay is generally recognized as the worlds widest planted white wine grape variety because it grows so well and produces great wine in many viticulture districts. The Pyrenees of Western Victoria is one such district where the cool nights and warm days help the vine thrive and produce a uniquely subtle flavoured wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The 2012 Leydens Vale Reserve Chardonnay is light green in colour, showing beautiful clarity and brightness.

Aroma

The nose is an amalgam of Almond, cashew, lemon curd, grapefruit, nectarine and white peach notes.

Palate

These flavours are evident on the palate, ably complemented by elegance and length, soft creamy mouth feel and a lingering finish.

Food Matching

This delicious Chardonnay matches well with chicken and seafood dishes, creamy pasta with mushrooms and is also a refreshing drink in itself.

Winemakers Notes

Chardonnay is generally recognized as the worlds widest planted white wine grape variety because it grows so well and produces great wine in many viticultural districts. The Pyrenees of Western Victoria is one such district where the cool nights and warm days help the vine thrive and produce a unique subtle flavoured wine. The 2011/ 2012 growing season was near perfect for all varieties with regular rains during a cool spring & summer, plus a warm dry autumn finish which allowed healthy vine canopy growth, important for development of shade, flavour and ripeness.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
