Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

St Huberts Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria
One of the Yarra Valley's original vineyards dating back to 1862, St Huberts currently operates four blocks of distinguished Chardonnay vines. Planted on a gentle slope of well drained grey loamy soils, the fruit from these parcels provides the backbone to one of Victoria's most stately Chardonnay wines. The princely berries translate into a beautifully aromatic bouquet and rich palate, slightly citrus, set against a background of grapefruit, apple and melon flavours all bound together by suggestions of cool climate mineral and French vanilla oak.

St Huberts Vineyard is gently sloping, thus maximizing drainage and preventing the vines from getting wet feet. Careful management using three trellis systems ensures that each block of vines fully ripens, but also adds complexity to the finished wine. Chardonnay is sourced from the St Hubert property and mature mature Yarra Valley vineyards. A high solids juice, extracted from the pressing of whole bunches and destemmed grapes, is fermented in a mix of new and seasoned French oak. Minimal handling ensures that the fresh varietal fruit and integrated oak characters remain in balance. Batches are treated to maturation on yeast lees, a small component completes malolactic to add texture and palate weight.
Light to medium straw, hues of green. Nutty barrel ferment aromas with lifted notes of peach and pear, given complexity by hints of citrus peel and toasty, nougat oak. Generous and rich on the palate, stonefruits, honeysuckle and spicy oak, even and restrained. The finish is tight, with lingering citrus and creme caramel notes.
