The Domaine Chandon and Green Point operations are located amongst some of the most superlative Chardonnay vineyards in Yarra Valley. Vines were established to soils made rich after many decades of mixed farming. Fruit is sourced primarily from the cooler, elevated sites of Upper Yarra Valley. Vineyards in this region are renowned for producing Chardonnay with citrus flavours and high natural acidity at moderate sugar levels. Parcels of fruit from the lower reaches of the Valley floor contribute lovely soft stone fruit characters. Grapes are hand picked and vinified in French oak barrels, wild yeast ferments, lees stirring and ten months maturation build layers of texture and complexity.
 
Pale straw, green hues. The aroma expresses pristine varietal characters of white nectarine, ripe citrus and stone fruit as well as a subtle flavour profile of sweet, exotic spice. The palate is complex, structured and layered showing excellent balance between the expression of vibrant fruit and the secondary characters of roasted spice, soft cheese and toasty characters derived from fermentation, aging and lees stirring in French oak.
Domaine Chandon Heathcote Shiraz
Heathcote
Available by the dozen
Shiraz from the Chandon Colbinabbin Vineyard at Heathcote, an auspicious confluence of terroir and clime unlike any other in the world. Deep ferrous soils punish the vines into digging deep for their moisture, infusing grapes with the most ardent, stately tannins. The peaks of Mount Carmel Range further serve to conduct chilling southerlies along fortuitous longitudes, very like the Mistral winds of Vall√ɬ©e du Rh√ɬīne. Easterly aspects moderate afternoon heat, so essential for an idyllic ripening of Shiraz grapes with extraordinary concentration of flavour.

Bunches of estate grown grapes are destemmed and crushed, chilled and treated to three days of cold soak. Regular pumpovers are applied to ferments throughout the course of vinification, gently extracting colour, flavour and tannin while building body in the wine. A portion is transferred to oak and fermented to dryness, another is set aside and settled for several days of rest, a third remains on skins for an extended maceration. After pressing, all parcels are run to a mix of seasoned and new French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and maturation. After fourteen months, the best barrels are assembled into the finished wine and sent for a further six months of age before bottling.
 
Deep red colour, bright purple hues. Radiant perfumes of berry compote, blueberries and blood plum fruits, liquorice and liqueurs, seasoned by Asian five spice, cacao and carob. Juicy berry fruit flavours flood the palate, piquant spiced plums, cured meats and savoury complexity. Fine, silky tannins throughout, a memorable, everlasting finish. A match to game roasts and corned beef.

Yarra Valley

Victoria makes world class Pinot Noir, Chandon have the resources to develop the best vineyards and to retain the finest sites.

Crafted to an artisanal old world style of vinification, the retention of whole berries in the ferments is essential, bunches are destemmed but uncrushed into small open vessels and treated to three days of cold soak. Each vineyard patch is separately handled throughout the winemaking. Ferments are closely managed, temperature controls and a course of old fashioned hand plunging aid in the optimal extraction of colour, flavours and soft tannin. Upon completion, batches are pressed to a selection French oak barriques for malolactic and maturation. Some components remain on malolactic lees while others are racked and returned to oak, the best barrels are determined and assembled into the finished wine.
 
Dark garnet with purple edges. The nose exudes the idiosyncrasy of Pinot Noir grown to good terroir, cherries and applejack, sassafras and earthy, forest floor notes. The palate is layered with dark cherry flavours, seasoned by closet spice and cedary clove notes, supported by dark grain acidity and textural, licorice tannins. Match to vension and rare breast of duck.

When Moet & Chandon purchased the Green Point property, the original homestead, built around 1880, was renovated and a purpose built winery located next door. Originally a mixed farming property, Chandon and the Green Point winemaking operations are located in lovely grounds amongst the vineyards, enjoying spectacular views across the valley to the mountains. The Colonnade linking the winery to the visitor's centre, with its distinctive link arches, was architecturally inspired by the Chateau of the Champagne Houses of France. The winery was purpose built to architecture which is a marriage of modern, and the traditional Champenoise.

In addition to the Yarra Valley vineyards, Domaine Chandon Australia has established a forty hectare vineyard on the remote, and very cool Strathbogie Ranges, about 150 km north of the Yarra Valley Vineyard. The Strathbogie Vineyard is planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, and is called upon to provide distinguished batches of fruit, from highly specialized sparkling wine vineyards, to embellish the superb Chandon Cuvées. Grapes sourced at the Strothbogie site are of world class and yield exemplary varietal wines.

A wide range of styles are produced, including the Vintage Brut, Rose and Blanc de Blancs, three distinct styles which exhibit complexity from three years ageing on yeasts in the bottle. The immensely successful Chandon Vintage range was launched in 1989 and is now established as a leader in the Australian market. It has also been very successful in export markets, particularly the UK and Japan. The NV Brut is a recent inclusion to the range and has become Chandon's volume leader.

The classic Pinot Noir Chardonnay, Rose and pure Chardonnay non-vintage Brut are fresh, lively styles distinguished by a complexity derived from the inclusion of Reserve wines (base wines of older vintages that are aged in tank or under oak. The Cuvee Riche is a luscious high doseage sweeter style. Green Point Cuvee, Chandon's prestige sparkling, is a very long yeast aged wine (five years) made from the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay base wines. A Sparkling Pinot Noir Shiraz expresses the Australian classic style through an unusual blend of seldom matched varietals.
