Mystery Single Vineyard 95 Point Yarra Chardonnay

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wonderful small producer from the Yarra has delivered and absolute gift here. And the great care from vineyard to bottle is blatantly obvious everywhere you look!

Its not over the top, but its definitely a medium to heavy style of Yarra chardonnay. 30% new French and 70% older french is a perfect balance here Its got a great mouth filling viscosity as the malolactic fermentation and regular battonage come to the fore. This is one for chardonnay purists. It will live for quite a few years yet, but get into it over next 3-4 years for pure indulgence..

Winemaker's Notes

Handpicked fruit is crushed and gently pressed into a holding tank for 48 hours to separate the clear juice from the settled lees. The juice is then racked to a combination of 30% new and 70% older French oak barriques for primary fermentation. 100% wild yeast ferment.

The fermenting barrels are placed in a temperature controlled storage area where the primary fermentation process is monitored until complete. After primary fermentation approximately 20% of the barrels undergo malolactic fermentation to add complexity and soften the acid structure.

Throughout the entire fermentation process the wine undergoes battonage (lees stirring) to harmonize and add creaminess to the palate. Battonage continues through until the wine is prepared for bottling.

Mystery Single Vineyard 95 Point Yarra Chardonnay

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Predominantly from the best two clones (prior to the Dijon clone) P58 and Mendoza. Has the hallmark length of flavour on the palate (and aftertaste) firmly stamped on it, but not at the expense of complexity. A classic assemblage of white peach, grapefruit and oak-derived cashew are tightly woven together with the aid of flinty acidity on the finish.
