Wantirna Estate Isabella Chardonnay 2019

98 Points - Stuart McCloskey “Time in the glass is the great benefactor (mine was left for an hour) resulting in a bouquet that blossoms and comes alive with buttered lemon, citrus peel, quartz, salty sea spray and chalk – vibrant and captivating. The palate delivers wave after wave of seductive buttered citrus fruit underpinned with razor sharp acidity. The density and palate feel are truly remarkable for such a young wine. I fear you would miss the amplitude, sheen, depth and glossiness if poured straight from the fridge (word to the wise). Yet another suave, seamless and immensely pleasing wine which will only get better over the next 10+ years. For Burgundy purists or those seeking something special, but do not want to part with £100 – this is the one for you. Compelling drinking. Decant for an hour and serve using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”

Wantirna Estate

These are beautifully judged, handcrafted and terroir driven wines which reflect meticulous attention to detail in all aspects of viticulture and winemaking.

Reg and Tina Egan of Wantirna Estate were among the early movers in the rebirth of the Yarra Valley. The vineyard surrounds the house they live in, which also incorporates the winery. Today much of the winemaking responsibility has been transferred to daughter Maryann. Reg and Maryann have honed their practical skills among the small domaines and chateaux of Burgundy and Bordeaux, inspired by single vineyard, terroir-driven wines.

Established in 1963, Wantirna Estate ranks among the elite in Australia and we are so thrilled to exclusively launch their wines across Europe. These are beautifully judged, handcrafted and terroir driven wines which reflect meticulous attention to detail in all aspects of viticulture and winemaking. Unquestionably, this trio represents the most classical examples we have sampled from Australia, which effortlessly compete with Bordeaux and Burgundy, albeit with their own footprint of brilliance. Thoughtful and intelligent wines which demand everyone’s attention.

The label artwork: Wantirna gradually renamed their wines to include the names of their four granddaughters. In addition to that, there is an illustration by the well-known cartoonist and artist, Michael Leunig depicting something about each of the girls’ personalities.
