If you’ve ever met Bress winemaker Adam Marks you will clearly remember and probably have a story or two about antics or racy anecdotes you were subjected to. The winery is based in the Harcourt Valley and embraces the holistic natural farming approach that is biodynamics. The wines are all great, with fruit sourced from all over Australia.
A wine made with love, this is pure Chardonnay. Grapefruits, nectarine and peaches. The palate is mid weight with careful oak and lees handling adding savoury layers to the pristine fruit. Citrusy acidity and a long creamy finish make this a very classy Chardonnay and great value.
Chardonnay – The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
Macedon – A hour North West of Melbourne the vineyards are planted between 400-700 metres on the Great Dividing Range. With some of, if not the, coolest vineyards in Australia they are naturals for making Pinot and Chardonnay for high class in Australia.
