Allegiance Wines Unity Single Vineyard Yarra Valley Chardonnay 2018
Varieties
Chardonnay
Region
Yarra Valley, Victoria
Vineyard
Napoleone Vineyard, Coldstream, Yarra Valley.  Classic Coldstream duplex mudstone clay soils.  A mix of Chardonnay clones of I10V1 and Bernards.
Wine
making Notes
A blend of hand harvested and machine harvested fruit, top loaded to press, no crushing.  Coarse settled, no enzyme, 50% racked to indigenous ferment in puncheon, the balance fermented in tank with Burgundy isolate yeast strain.  Post sugar dryness, both barrels and tank were lees stirred to build mouthfeel and richness.  The tank volume saw full malolactic fermentation.  Matured on lees with no SO2 for approx. 10 months, the wine was then blended and SO2 added.
Colour
Bright light straw with green hue
Nose
White florals, grapefruit, nectarine and fresh apple.  A slight hint of nut and lemon curd creaminess from secondary winemaking elements complex with smoke and spice oak notes.
Palate
Fruit drive of grapefruit and white nectarine are upfront.  Floral, and yellow stonefruit characters flow, while a rounding creaminess is generous through the length of the palate.  Supported by savoury and textural elements and a firm acid, the wine holds a great line, riding long and full of flavour.
Dedication
Shoulder to shoulder we stand with pride, love and unity
Erik de Haart survived one of Australia’s worst tragedies - the 2002 Bali bombings.  The heartbreaking loss of his Coogee Dolphins team mates and the horrendous aftermath of the attack will never leave him. Whilst his courageous and selfless efforts on that terrible night saved many lives, Erik personally retreated from the hero tag that everyone else believed he deserved.  After many years of suffering in silence, Erik has displayed even more courage to bring attention to one of our society’s most insidious dangers – the mental anguish he suffers through the guilt of those he couldn’t save.  Erik’s powerful story will continue to assist other people in our community to seek assistance with their own problems.  Whilst we will never know the ever present emotional pain he endures, we stand shoulder to shoulder with Erik in pride, love and unity.

Reviews
95 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Youthful and beautifully poised, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, grapefruit, and hazelnut characters on the nose with nuances of nougat and oatmeal. It is brilliantly focused and beautifully weighted on the palate with fine texture and lovely flow, offering pristine fruit flavours together with elegant oak infusion, finishing persistent and linear. At its best: 2020 to 2026.
95 points (5 Stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  This ‘once in a while’ Chardonnay in that ‘once in a while’ we discover one that ‘once in a while’ puts the ‘c’ into complete. The nose has grapefruit abundant complimented with granny smith apple and spice. The palate delivers nectarines and white peach, while the hands on winemaking detail, delivers an overall creaminess as a consequence of the part malolactic fermentation. As our Burgundian cousins would say ‘Magnifique’!
