Yarra Valley – Dixons Creek

A mid-weight Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley, this wine has a hint of oak and shows stone fruits mixed with citrus on the nose. The palate is long and fine with a touch of vanilla and honey–dew melon. Drink now or allow it to develop further over the next 35 years.

Drink with: classic roast chicken with crispy skin; or your favourite Brie or Camembert
Do: get the gang over, watch a classic movie, debate the ending, crack open a second bottle

Dixon’s Creek is situated at the Northern limit of the Yarra Valley.

2023 was a relatively cool year marked by significant rainfall in the early Spring. The rain eased but continued to fall regularly through the remainder of Spring before easing for a dry yet cool summer. Harvest started in early autumn, several weeks behind the long term average. These ideal conditions ripened the fruit slowly developing beautiful flavours whilst retaining lovely acid. Yields were small but quality was extremely good.

80% of the juice was fermented in stainless steelwith the balance going into seasoned oak. Both parcels went through Malolactic fermentation and were kept on lees. After 9 months in storagethe wine was sent to bottle after a light filtration
