Yarra Valley, Victoria
Flavours and aromas of white peach, citrus and delicious toasty crème brûlée. All with an easy balanced acid palate.
This Chardonnay has been harvested from our “Siwa” vineyard – the home vineyard of Kellybrook Winery in the Yarra Valley. Siwa is the original name that Alfred Kelly gave the Kellybrook property on Fulford Road at Wonga Park that he and Inez bought in back in 1935. He named it such because of its beauty and sense of peacefulness which was like that of the Egyptian Oasis called Siwa in the Western desert where he rested during the Second World War. We have named our vineyard, planted in 1975, “Siwa”, in honour of this history.
Drink this wine with rich and hearty dishes, such as French-style roasted chicken with a butter and thyme sauce resting on roasted root vegetables, or spice roasted pumpkin, shallots, walnuts and Persian fetta. The wine shall further improve 3 – 5 years from vintage.
