Rob Hall is hardly a household name, but as a winemaker at Mount Mary he has helped deliver some fantastic wines just behind the scenes.
You can see that context with this Chardonnay, which is another entrant in the classy modern Chard stakes. It's complex, layered white with the vitality of the best and a lovely punchy middle.

Class at every turn.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionThree vineyards, 70% whole-bunch pressed to barrel with full solids, 20% destemmed with 24 hours skin contact, 10% destemmed and fermented on skins for 7 days, matured in French oak (10% new). The bouquet is complex, as too is the palate; a very interesting group of vineyards, Lower and Upper Yarra- it all works well. Tangy, and with a long life ahead.

How's it taste?

There’s flavours of curd and fresh cream, white peach and citrus. It’s leesy and fresh, but with nice weight on the palate.

How was it made?

A blend of three vineyards. Willowlake (cooler southern end of the Yarra Valley), Daniel's Hill (the warmer northern end) and Hall's parents vineyard (south of Healesville) which lies between the other two both in it’s geography and climate. 

Predominantly fermented in older French hogsheads (300L). 70% whole-bunch pressed to barrel with full solids, 20% destemmed with 24 hours skin contact, 10% destemmed and fermented on skins for 7 days, matured in French oak (10% new).

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
