Wirra Wirra Scrubby Rise Chardonnay 2022
Pale green straw. A fresh nose of bright grapefruit and lemon pith with white peach, flinty notes, and a hint of savoury oak. There is a burst of juicy citrus with oak ferment and lees characters adding savoury complexity. This is a vibrant and deliciously textured expression of cool climate Chardonnay.
The name Scrubby Rise comes from the vineyard at the front of the century old ironstone cellars, its rich soils providing some of our best fruit every season. That the Scrubby Rise Vineyard is actually flat and bereft of scrub has never bothered us particularly. Scrubby Rise wines drink well in their youth and are best matched with good food, friends and conversation.
