Coombe Farm Chardonnay is one of our ‘flagship’ wines and one for which we are most renowned. Identifiable by its citrus and stone-fruit flavour intensity, this wine shows enduring acidity and oak finesse. 2015 saw idyllic vintage conditions in the Yarra Valley, resulting in wines that are bright and fresh, with crisp, lively acidity.
The 2015 Coombe Farm Chardonnay is a 45/55 blend of the Mendoza and Penfolds 58 clones. Each batch was fermented in French oak barriques with varying proportions of new and old oak. Approximately 10% of the barrels completed malolactic fermentation.
