Oakridge Vineyard Series Henk Chardonnay 2017

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  688242

A standout vineyard with what feels like a strong influence of terroir. If the aromas of flint, chalk, sandstone, dried white blossoms, white peppers, dried nutmeg, acacia and dried citrus peel don't grab your attention, then nothing will. This does about everything right for a cool-climate chardonnay, marrying a strong center palate of textured citrus fruit and spicy complexity with an ethereally long line of acidity and pith. First commercially available vintage of this stunning site in the Yarra. Amazing now but better in 2025. Score - 97. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Dec. 10, 2018)
