Overview

2016 was a high quality vintage in the Yarra Valley. From veraison to harvest the weather was warm, without extreme heat, and the night time temperatures were cooler than average. This combination aids ripening while retaining acid in the fruit. Careful vineyard management gives the fruit the qualities that are a hallmark of TarraWarra Estate Chardonnay.

Expert Reviews

Ratign 92 - Steven Creber Australian Wine Companin Published 01 August 2018

Tarrawarra's staple chardonnay release, usually a good guide to the personality of the vintage. From this warmer year, there's ripeness, with stone fruit more pronounced than citrus. Oak is subtle, adding a creamy, nutty element to the aromas and flavours and texture on the palate. Freshness and balance without elaboration is a successful formula here.

Winery Tasting Notes

The wine is a blend of seven blocks located across the TarraWarra property. Harvested between 11.8 and 12.4 baume, the wine was naturally fermented in both barrel and tank. The wine has grapefruit and lemon zest aromas with underlying notes of cashew nuts. The tight palate reflects the season, with texture derived from 10 months on lees and a lovely drive with persistence of flavour. With oak and tank maturation, the wine shows an elegant complexity with appealing freshness.
