CHARDONNAY - The Current State of Play

Wine Wise, an authoritative and well-respected voice in Australian wine, recently had a panel ‘blindly’ taste a range of Australian chardonnays to compose a listicle piece on the best of Australian chardonnay.

Our 2014 864 Drive Block Funder & Diamond Chardonnay was recognised as a wine that ticked all the boxed – delivering on freshness, intensity, balance, complexity, structure and texture. They described our drop as ‘long and textural’ with hazelnut notes.

The panel tasted 27 wines from a variety of regions to ensure it encapsulates a representative and thorough sample from the Australian wine landscape. Regions included the likes of Adelaide Hills, Beechworth, Mornington Peninsula, Tasmania, Margaret River and Yarra Valley.

Come visit us in the Oakridge Cellar Door, open every day from 10AM – 5PM, to taste our range of chardonnay’s or other varietals.
