Yarra Burn Pinot Chardonnay Meunier 2015
Available by the dozen
Yarra Burn were the first Yarra Valley winery ever to produce a sparkling wine and still leading the way. A generous and satisfying style crafted from the noble trio of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier, grown to some of the nation's finest vineyards, Yarra Burn derives additional complexity through the addition of aged reserve stocks from earlier vintages. A limited quantity is produced each year, crafted into an elite and enduring expression of Yarra Burn's signature finesse. Components are asembled into a consistency of style, elegance and complexity that's rare. Yarra Burn develops remarkable richness as the separate parts mature on yeast lees, followed by an extended term of bottle age.
A vibrant Victorian sparkler, sourced principally from fuly mature, slow ripening sites, a key driver to the exquisite styling and profound expression of fruit. The holy trinity of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier have been expertly fashioned into an elegantly effervescent Cuv√©e of structure and refinement. Crystal clear with delicate bead and rich golden hues, layered with stonefruit cherry characters and brimming with bready autolysis, Yarra Burn redefines the sophistication of Yarra Valley Pinot Chardonnay.
Crystal clear, straw hues, fine persistent bead. Displays the distinct lemon/ lime character of cold climate Chardonnay, white stonefruit notes, Pinot cherry and baked yeast autolysis. Aged Chardonnay toastyness, butter and mushrooms are complemented by savoury earthy Pinot truffle flavours. Yarra Burn has an elegantly structured palate, offering great persistence of flavour and soft, creamy textures before a fresh, natural acid finish.
