Tasting Notes

This year’s chardonnay was picked across a seven day period in early March, offering a full flavour profile from the vineyard's lean granitic soil. The fruit was immaculate - fully ripe with ideal natural acidity. The juice fermented in a mixture of 600 litre demi-muids and 228 litre barriques. As usual, the new oak component is around 25%. This release shows greater intensity than previous years and an approachable palate, due to the combination of a lighter crop and extended ripening. Importantly, the wine embodies the hallmark precision and purity of Domenica Estate vineyard. - Winemaker Note

Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it.

Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts comes from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak bariques before being bottled unfiltered.

Winemaker Peter Graham cut his teeth at nearby Giaconda, where he worked as assistant winemaker for thirteen years. During the early part of this time he completed a degree in wine science by correspondence through Charles Sturt University. - Winery Note
