With a pale gold colour and mouth-watering texture not dissimilar to a top-flight Chablis, this is possibly one of the best chardonnays produced in Australia. Layers of fruit flavour play with hints of cream and wood, but it’s the judicious use of acidity that knocks things out of the park. The white wines are soaked on skins for wild fermentation before being pressed to finish fermentation in tanks and then racked in oak over winter.

A little about Tarrington Vineyards

‘Winemaking is mostly masterly inactivity with little intervention.’

The 5 acre vineyard has an elevation of 250m above sea level and experiences a very cool climate. The vineyards are integrated into the farm and thus benefit from the balanced environment of biodynamic practice. For example, sheep grazing is used regularly to help control weeds and remove unwanted foliage.

Biodynamic agriculture is premised on the idea that nature - and by extension the world - is an almost infinite series of series of interconnected relationships. A farm is composed of a web of relationships between the soil, air, water, microbes, plants, farmers and so on. Biodynamic agriculture uses a wholistic approach with not one part being singled out.
