Additional Information on Yabby Lake Vineyard Chardonnay 2006

Varietal: Chardonnay

Despite having its origins in western France, Chardonnay's immense popularity and flexibility quickly meant that before long, there wasn't a wine producing country in the world which wasn't investing in this fascinating and versatile grape varietal. Today, Chardonnays manage to win fine wine competitions and satisfy supermarket shoppers simultaneously, due to the fact that this grape varietal can take on many characteristics and features of where it is grown and how it is handled. Indeed, this green skinned grape is renowned for not having so much unique flavor within the fruit, but is very sensitive to the features of the terroir it is grown in, as well as to aging As such, it isn't unusual to find bottles of single variety Chardonnay wine described as holding notes of white stone, mountain waters, or other such geological features alongside the more predictable fruit descriptions This makes Chardonnay grape varietal wines an exciting world to delve into full of surprises, full of delights.

Region: Victoria

The south westerly region of Victoria in Australia has long been an important wine region, responsible for the production of many of Australia's most interesting and characterful wines. The climate of the region is ideal for growing a wide range of both red and white wine grapes, and wineries in Victoria are renowned for their openness to experimentation with both new techniques and methods, as well as a wide range of grape varietals. Despite there being over six hundred wineries operating in Victoria, it is only the third most productive wine region in Australia. This is due to the fact that the wineries of the region have a dedication to quality over quantity which is unmatched elsewhere in the country, making Victoria a region full of fascinating surprises, and some seriously excellent examples of Australian wine.

Country: Australia

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
