2016 DERWENT ESTATE CHARDONNAY GOLD MEDAL 2019 Tasmanian Wine Show
The immaculate fruit from this Granton vineyard (overlooking the Derwent River near the Bridgewater Bridge has been an important component of Yattarna over several vintages.
Michele's notes: I loved this! Such style, such structure, impressive at every level. Intense fruit - more in the nectarine spectrum, white flowers... Silky and smooth then a touch of chewiness which is most agreeable, before the savoury finish. Magnificent. Great cellar proposition.
