Rising Chardonnay is a beautiful wine. It features pure white peach, tangerine and a hint of pears. It is long, clean and fresh. The acid is lovely and the body is supple and easily slides down. Rising Chardonnay comes to us as 100% hand-picked Chardonnay. Pressed, settled overnight, and then transferred to larger oak for natural fermentation. Aging in barrel is on lees and without SO2 or any other additions. Before bottling filtration and an addition of SO2 take place. Drink Rising Chardonnay over the coming 3-5 years.

A tight acid line drives this persuasively and along for the ride lemon-lime, white stone fruit, florals (a distinct lavender note), plus its fair share of toasty sweet oak. Linear and lithe, it finishes long with a savoury end.” 94/100 Points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, 1 September, 2019

Yarra Valley 

A region that is just too big to generalise about. The difference between Upper and Lower Yarra can be the ability to ripen some grapes or not. Great wines are made in the Yarra but it is best to know the producers.


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.
