Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
Fresh aromas of stone fruit and delicate citrus combine with straw and cedar spice. The palate displays a pure and elegant mouth feel with stone fruit, zesty lime and jasmine, while a fine acid backbone combines lees-derived texture to produce a wine of depth and complexity.
Item Code: ITM18637
Pale straw in colour with a delicate, tight minerally nose that opens beautifully to reveal lovely aromas of white peach. The palate is surprisingly full-bodied, fresh and rich yet crunchy, while the finish is quite textural and long, with an appealing acid line. A wine that will age gracefully and evolve into a Meursault-style Chardonnay.
Item Code: 30065
Pale straw yellow in colour with complex aromas of citrus and stone fruit with light toasty notes. Time in French oak has created a plush, creamy palate that is both rich and mouth-filling. The zesty acid forms a balanced framework for the wine, which finishes with an elegant, long farewell.

A true benchmark in Australian Chardonnay, Tyrrell's Vat 47 continues its evolution towards a more delicate and textural style. The nose shows delicate citrus and white stonefruit with a hint of oak and sulphide lift. The palate retains the generosity of Chardonnay but in a refined form. The fruit is balanced well with the fresh acidity and slight textural element from extended time on yeast lees.

“Its quality is bell clear. It’s almost rich, almost elegant, not especially
complex but not simple either. Oak and fruit form a happy marriage before
striding out to a refreshing, confident finish. It’s a beautiful chardonnay.” Halliday Wine Companion
