Wood Park’s original plantings were in 1989. Since then they have built their reputation on making quality wines from the King Valley.
Apples, grapes, exotic tropical fruits and floral notes greet you on the nose. There is plenty of flavour on the clean, lean and refreshing palate. Interestingly the wine lasted really well over four nights open so there in no need for hangovers from over indulgence or preservatives.
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.
King Valley – A picturesque region near Victoria’s snow fields that offers cooler climate wines. A strong Italian heritage in the area means there are a lot of Italian varieties grown.
