Grapes for the Domaine Chandon Barrel Selection Yarra Valley Chardonnay were sourced from primarily cooler, elevated vineyards planted in red volcanic soils at Yarra Junction and Seville in the Upper Yarra. Grapes from these cool-climate sites have great delicacy, purity of fruit, and acid structure that show long, elegant, citrus and mineral characters in the wines they produce. These are the hall marks of our Barrel Selection Chardonnay style.
Chardonnay offers floral aromas with honeysuckle and wisteria highlights punctuated by the essence of fresh lemon zest. The palate is crisp with a refined richness that displays apricot and nectarine flavors, well-integrated oak and perfectly balanced acidity.
