2019 Narkoojee ‘Lily Grace’ Gippsland Chardonnay
Harry Friend planted an experimental plot of vines on the family dairy farm in 1980. Five years later the first wine won a gold medal and they’ve never looked back. Harry is now joined by his son Axel, both making the wines together. All their wines are made from only estate fruit. Their new release Chardy is beautifully structured and elegant. There’s some funk on the nose from the wild yeast fermentation but other than that it’s all citrus and flowery.
