2018 Gembrook Hill Chardonnay
Upper Yarra Valley has become a source of electrically charged wines of late, thanks to its cooler climes. Ian and June Marks from Gembrook Hill have known this secret for some time, establishing in this ‘hot spot’ in 1983.
Today their son Andrew (who is also the brains behind Melbourne Gin Company) is a guiding light at this revered estate.
‘Ripe mealy core of hazelnuts and mountain spice, signs off with pleasing grapefruit pith tones and an energetic line of acidity.’
A special occasion wine that could hold its own next to a damn fine roast chook.
