Little Yering Chardonnay 2011 (RV)                                                           

100% Chardonnay. 13% Alcohol. Great intensity with mineral notes, white nectarine and citrus flavours. This wine shows a creamy, nutty complexity with freshness and elegance. Medium weight with clean citrus fruit supported by well integrated French oak and balanced acidity. Great structure and length in the finish, this wine shows typical cool climate characteristics and will reward medium term cellaring.
