    Textural, savoury and delicate Chardonnay

    Producer

    Since meeting in the late 1990s while studying viticulture, Tom and Sally Belford had talked about making wine without the intensive energy inputs and additions that had become the norm in wine production. They started Bobar in 2010 to get away from “all the bullshit” that came with making wine in their part of the Yarra Valley.

    Region

    First planted with vines in 1838, the Yarra Valley is the birthplace of the Victorian wine industry. It ceased production in the fortified wine boom in the 1920s and planting began again in earnest in the 1960s with modern pioneers such as Dr Bailey Carrodus, Guill de Pury and Dr John Middleton paving the way for the Yarra Valley to become one of Australia’s premier wine growing regions today. Their Yarra Yering, Yeringberg and Mount Mary wineries remain regional heroes, firm favorites such as Coldstream Hills and new star wineries such as Oakridge and Giant Steps excel with stunning examples of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling are also no slouch in the region and the exciting new breed of wineries such as Bobar, Mac Forbes, Hoddles Creek, Salo, Timo Mayer, Thousand Candles and Proud Primary Produce are proof of the Yarra Valley’s diversity and understanding of place. Local Knowledge: The restaurant at Oakridge Wines is one of the finest regional dining experiences in the land…. Have a glass of 864 Chardonnay while you are there.

    The Royale (without cheese) from 2018 is an outstanding release and this ‘rank and file’ 2018 Chardonnay from Bobar is hot on its heels. The new(ish) releases of Bobar seem to be hitting a high note. Straight up delicious drinking. Worth every dollar, with a sense of pedigree yet that wild edge we kind of expect from Bobar’s expressive suite of wines. This has saline top notes and nuttiness in the mix of apple juice, faint farmhouse cider notes and whiffs of brown pear and brown lime. It’s got a little traction on the palate too, a light chew akin to the grip of pear skin or similar, lending good shape and tension with each sip. Freshness is the feel here, so is the hum of savouriness. If you like chardonnay of detail and distinction, this is a good thing.
