Product Description:

2011 Whitebox Jeff Fenech Selection Yarra Valley Chardonnay

 

The 2011 growing season in the Yarra Valley proved to be excellent for most grape varieties.  Perfect weather during flowering ensured optimal crop levels. Rainfall was reasonable and fell at regular intervals, and temperatures were slightly above average.

 

The Jeff Fenech signature wines are small parcels chosen by Jeff that showcase what he truly loves about Whitebox wines – intensity, purity, elegance and balance.

 

Light straw-green in colour; the 2011 Chardonnay exhibits a perfumed bouquet of white peach and fig. These fruit characters are complemented on the complex palate by spicy French oak, leading into a delicate lingering finish showing minerality and crisp acid

 

Our Yarra Valley fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and pressed off skins immediately. Following fermentation and clarification the wine was split into two parcels. The first underwent short maturation in French oak while the second parcel was matured in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. These parcels were blended prior to bottling, resulting in a wine which combines fresh varietal fruit with rich complexity.

 

Whitebox wines are fashioned with respect to terroir and tradition. Drinking well now, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many years to come.

 

This versatile wine is suited to a broad range of dishes, including pasta with mushroom garlic and cream, simple roast chicken, crayfish with tarragon butter or Brie and dried apricots.
