The inaugural vintage of our Tribute Chardonnay – named in honour of Evie Armstrong, Dame Nellie Melba’s daughter in law and Pamela, Lady Vestey’s mother.
A blend of some our finest Chardonnay barriques from the mild, low yielding 2014 vintage, this wine is a delicate, elegant at refined Chardonnay with fine, focused acidity and a wonderful length of citrus flavour.
95% P58/ 5% Mendoza Chardonnay clones.
Handpicked fruit, whole-bunch pressed, juice settled then racked to French oak barriques – of which approximately 35% were new. Alcoholic fermentation was completed naturally and malolactic fermentation was not encouraged. Matured in oak for 13 months.
The Yarra Valley is one of the best Chardonnay regions in Australia, if not the world and Coombe Farm is a renowned supplier to our own and many award winning producers.
Acidity approximately 7.0 g/l & pH 3.2
