Serrat Chardonnay 2017

Serrat Chardonnay 2018

Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    12.5%

Serrat is the family business of former Yering Station and current Yabby Lake winemaker Tom Carson and partner Nadege Suné. Serrat has 8,800 vines per hectare - more than four times the average density, however their vines carry only a few bunches each. Remarkably, it takes one vine to produce each bottle of Serrat wine; these are genuine, hand-crafted wines of the highest quality.

The 2018 Serrat Chardonnay is a rich, flavoursome example of Yarra Valley Chardonnay with impressive concentration and texture that gives it the approachability to be enjoyed young. Finishing with a remarkable length, this is another superb offering from the talented duo behind Serrat.

"95 Points. Hand-picked Mendoza clone, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in French puncheons, no mlf, matured for 11 months with minimal stirring. White peach, nectarine and melon, no grapefruit. Attention to detail, doing more by doing less. Screwcap. 12.5% alc. To 2026. $44" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

"This wine is 100% from the Mendoza block of Chardonnay, which was planted in 2007. Barrel fermented with full solids in 500 Litre French oak puncheons and aged on lees for 11 months. Only addition to this wine is SO2. 15% new Oak. The 2018 is loaded with stone fruits, rock melon, grapefruit and citrus notes. There is an under lying thread of complexity from the natural ferment, full use of solids and barrel fermentation, that will continue to come to the fore as the wine ages. The palate is detailed and fleshy with layers of pithy texture with a minerally infused intensity. Long, elegant but with restrained power and concentration."- Serrat Wines.
