From the winery:
The Ingram Rd breed of Chardonnay is exciting, fresh, zesty and truly does the great grape variety known as Chardonnay justice. Gone are the days when you need a knife and fork to drink Chardonnay. Now, our Chardonnay is being made to reflect the subtle and complex fruit structure of this variety whilst maintaining a clean fresh finish on the palate.Our Ingram Rd Chardonnay is not like most inexpensive Chardonnays. Firstly it is made from our cool climate Yarra Valley Estate fruit, secondly small parcels are hand picked at harvest based on fruit flavours, thirdly it is 100% French oak fermented and matured and finally we utilize significant amounts of “wild” fermentation during the primary fermentation stage. This hand’s on approach, much of which relies on Mother Nature ensures that the fresh, complex, high quality Chardonnay fruit ends up in the bottle.
For those that think that they do not like Chardonnay, our Ingram Rd Chardonnay will open your taste buds up to the complex delights of what this great variety can taste like.
This is newly released from another sensational vintage in the Yarra – Scott McCarthy says “It has been a long time since I have been able to say that we have had 2 sensational vintages in a row. 2015 – the perfect mix of quality and quantity … so we once again crossed our fingers that Mother Nature would smile on us again in 2016. And she did. “ Previous vintage (2015) reviewed by James Hallliday “Hand-picked and 100% barrel-fermented, it is rich and full-fruited without forgetting its Yarra Valley heritage of length; stone fruits are the drivers, citrus providing the acidity.”
