2016 Tribute Series Chardonnay

The Tribute Series represents our finest, single site expressions. This 2016 Chardonnay is a selection of our finest, handpicked barrels, showing notes of lemon pith, white nectarine, beeswax and brioche. The palate is rich and complex, with oak finesse and a long finish.

2016 will be renowned as one of the most compact vintages in the Yarra Valley, with warm growing conditions and cool nights.  The resulting wines show generous fruit characters that are balanced with fresh acidity.
Fruit for this wine was selected from single blocks of premium Penfolds58 (85%) and Mendoza (15%) clone Chardonnay.
