expert reviews about
2011 PHI Single Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; a very refined style with primary emphasis on mouthfeel, texture and structure, paradoxically stemming from the fruit rather than the oak; it is creamy, yet fine, the stone fruit flavours subtle, the acidity gently drawing out the long finish.To 2020Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition
Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
This precise and delicate chardonnay is all about site. It comes from the Shelmerdine family's Lusatia Park Vineyard where the site, its aspect and microclimate produce wonderful fruit expression ideally suited to this minimalist winemaking approach. Winemaker Steve Webber has captured the site and variety perfectly.
