Ben Haines Yarra Valley Chardonnay


Small producer Ben Haines once again proves his talents in crafting youthful, textural whites without all the winemaking bells and whistles. A delicate, fruity nose of Mandarin orange, orchard blossoms, yeast, freshly picked wild grapes and minerals lead to a palate that is chalky yet slippery, crackling with pristine acidity and tangy fruit. Beautifully balanced and comfortable in its own skin, this is a breath of fresh air from a thoughtful winemaker
