2015 Coombe Farm Evelyn Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
95

Sourced from a single block of Penfolds 58 Clone Chardonnay that is characterised by it’s small berries, intense flavours and ability to retain acidity. The wine was whole bunched pressed and matured in new (35%) and one to two year old (65%) oak for 13 months.

A terrific example of top end Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley, the nose is beautifully expressive and spans the spectrum of stone fruit to worked brioche and flint before showing background flashes of lemon zest and grapefruit.

The palate flows with generosity of white peach that’s accentuated by baked fig and flint like spice. There is a lattice of understated lemony acidity that gives structure and focus to the finish that is awash with stone fruits and undeniably moreish almond-meal notes.
