Regular price $370.00

Reviews

"If you’re into the new wave of true fine wine producers of Australia you should be onto, should get onto, Domenica. Classics in the making. Rising high. Peter Graham got schooled (partly) at the great Giaconda winery in Beechworth. This is where he struts his own stuff. Single vineyard wine sent to large format oak to rest a while. It’s impressive." 
Mike Bennie - The Wine Front

Pale straw to gold. The powerful nose starts on notes of white peach, lemon, marzipan and honey before flowing to notes of oatmeal and star anise. The palate is rich though refined, the exuberant fruit of youth is evident, pear and grape, with all the elements of high quality chardonnay falling into line behind it. Cream, toast, cinnamon and clove are hallmarks of barrel fermentation and malolactic fermentation. The persistent bead of acidity blends seamlessly with the depth of fruit, showcasing the purity and intensity  developed by the granitic soils of Beechworth. A serious chardonnay.

Winemaker Notes

"The fruit for this wine comes from the Warner vineyard, immediately adjacent to the Domenica vineyard in the heart of the Beechworth G.I. The vineyard is located at around 450m altitude, on a granitic soil profile. Hand harvested fruit was lightly crushed, basket pressed, and settled off gross lees before transfer to French barriques, 20% new, where fermentation was allowed to proceed using wild yeast. A relatively warm ferment, in combination with the wild yeast, some use of solids, oxidative juice handling, malolactic fermentation and long (18 month) barrel maturation has resulted in a wine of texture and structure, striking a balance between youthful fruit, and secondary 'winemaking derived' characters."
