Patrick Sullivan Baw Baw Shire Chardonnay 2023
The Bull Swamp vineyard was planted in 1982 by the Farrington family on the very edge of the Warragul township.  The Baw Baw Shire Chardonnay comes from the younger plantings (25 years old) of the i10v1 clone.  Deep rich volcanic soils nourish the dry grown grape vines. Elevation at 100m, this section of the vineyard receives the least amount of airflow relative to the estate's other sites, with the northerly aspect providing full sunlight and exposure, resulting in powerful and rich fruit.

Quite a lovely purity here, with lifted florals, acacia, just subtle nudge of flint and reduction but more fruit driven with lemon zest, orange oil, clear honey and framing of wood spice – the palate is pitched incredibly well, with a classy, plushness that is well restrained, giving weight and power but without cloying or being decadent – white stone fruit, fresh cream and a really classy oak balance. Its flavoursome and delicious with a beautifully poised acid line that gently meanders on the finish.
