2018 Greenstone 'Estate' Yarra Valley Chardonnay
Greenstone was established in 2003, in Heathcote by global wine leaders David Gleave MW (UK), Alberto Antinori (Italy) and Mark Walpole (Aust). In 2015 an Australian family purchased the vineyard and looked to the Yarra Valley to expand. They purchased the Sticks vineyard (formerly Yarra Ridge) in the same year. Here is what James Halliday wrote about this wine in his 2021 Wine Companion “From the oldest block of clone P58, fermentation in French hogsheads (35% new), matured on lees for 10 months. Bright, youthful hue. Elegant from the start to finish, the fruit driving the show without even pausing for a breath. Will become more ballsy with a few more years in bottle”.
