Sticks Yarra Valley Chardonnay is a quality cool climate Yarra Valley white with flavours of grapefruit, white peach, citrus and oak spice. Excellent texture, definitely a wine to enjoy today.
Flavours of almond meal gives this white wine a little something extra, while the citrus and nectarine ensures it doesn't go down too heavily. This is the perfect variety for those who like their Chardonnay a little on the lighter side.
Sticks have been doing their Yarra Valley thing with great talent and love for a while now. Their much awarded wines prove that the care taken with their 'sticks in the ground' pays off many times over.
From the Winery
Grapes were harvested from our estate blocks and Upper Ngumby vineyard, both situated along the foot of the Christmas Hills range. Whole bunch pressed, and given a 24-hour coarse settling, the juice was racked into ferment in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads (300 L) and puncheons (500 L) and temperature controlled tanks. The solids included in fermentation contributed to the complexity and savoury notes found on the palate.
Post fermentation all the wine batches are aged on lees for approximately 10 months. Following a rigorous selection process, the Sticks Chardonnay is blended and prepared for bottling for you to enjoy!
