Vineyard

Tokar Estate’s Chardonnay block was established in 2007 by grafting two acres of the gentle North facing Shiraz block (planted in 1998), with the Chardonnay clone I10V1. Half is cane-pruned, whilst the other is spur-pruned.

Winemaking
The fruit was handpicked in early March, crushed and pressed to tank. The cloudy juice was then transferred to French oak barrels (30% new and mostly 500L puncheons) to ferment with a yeast strain isolated in Burgundy. No Malolactic fermentation was encouraged and the wine remained in barrel for 6 months before being blended in tank for further ageing on lees, before being prepared for bottling.


Sensory Analysis

The 2020 Chardonnay is pale-gold in colour with brilliant clarity. The aroma is dense and complex with white nectarine, grilled cashews, apple skin, biscuit, and a touch of wet slate-like minerality. The complexity continues on the palate with the oak playing a supporting role, bringing a coffee note before a long citrusy finish. This wine has the classic Yarra Valley Chardonnay drive and age-ability, and is best enjoyed alongside lightly grilled chicken or fresh barramundi with a crisp salad.
