2019 Little Reddie Bannockburn Chardonnay

Bannockburn, Victoria

Having harvested grapes in Bannockburn since 2013  the iconic Chardonnay site produces extremely low yields and rich, ripe fruit. The wine speaks truthfully to that, direct pressed with the small use of new oak but for the most part old, you get honey, pineapple, honeydew notes from that phenolic ripeness of the year, but still saline and crisp acidity that keep it fresh and structured. A really high quality Chard that deserves a meal of subtle flavours for lunch or dinner.

2019 Little Reddie Bannockburn Chardonnay
About the maker

Similarly to Oscar Hermann (Combes Wine), Pat Underwood's kindling for his wine obsession came from Melbourne's City Wine Shop. Over the last few years he has honed in his winemaking skills and now producing a few exceptional wines.

Pat runs his negotiant winemaking project out of Colbinabbin and Malmsbury in Victoria. He sources fruit from sites that resonate with him, but of special note are the Bannockburn sites that are minuscule in size, chemical and systemic free and low yielding. Not only a talented hand, but immensely is immensely dedicated to making wine in a minimal intervention manner, that ensures the wines are a true representation of a season and place.
