The 2019 ‘White Label’ Chardonnay from Macclesfield in the Upper Yarra Valley
is a deliciously textural wine that offers an array of orchid fruits; green
apple and nashi pear, and top notes of white flowers, and flinty, wet stone
character. The ancient red volcanic soils situated in this cooler part of
the Yarra Valley give depth, structure and power to this white.
Drink now or cellar for 5-10 years.
