5 Stars - James Halliday

Aaron Brasher, The Real Review "Aromas of green melon, nougat, white peach, white flowers and yoghurt. Creamy, peachy, nectarine, stone fruit, textured, layered and mouthfilling," (2021 vintage)

Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot "A lovely example of Mornington Peninsula Chardonnay showing that combination of delicacy and power. Whole bunch pressed to French oak hogsheads of which 12% was new. And then it got 12 months on lees which allowed the flavour profile to build. Has a savoury, slightly lemon curd palate with a little almond meal complexity. Love the overall feel." (2021 vintage)

Jeni Port, Halliday Wine Companion "A wine that stacks the bouquet in apple blossom, white peach, mango skin and citrus notes. Coasts nicely into a mid-palate core of nougat, leesy almond, baked bread and quince. Acidity is keen, but expect a fully integrated delight to emerge with some bottle age." (2021 vintage)

100% Chardonnay
Alcohol: 13%

The original Tar & Roses team of famed Don Lewis and Narelle King began their winemaking journey in Priorat, Spain, immersing themselves within the classic Mediterranean wine regions and varietals. This sparked an interest in how these varietals could be grown and made back home in their native regions of Central Victoria, Australia. Don, now passed was one of Australia's legendary winemakers earning the highest honour of winemaking in Australia, the prestigious Jimmy Watson award.

James Halliday "Tar & Roses produces wines inspired by the classic Mediterranean varietals and was named after the signature characteristics of Nebbiolo. The name also ties back to the winemaking team behind the venture, the legendary Don Lewis and his winemaking partner Narelle King. Narelle is carrying on the Tar & Roses tradition after Don's passing in 2017"

Tar & Roses style of wines reflects the multi-region of Spain, Italy and Australia, as well as traditional winemaking alongside the new. All Tar & Roses wines are made using fruit grown in Heathcote, Strathbogie Ranges, Alpine Valley, King Valley and Priorat, Spain.

Mornington Peninsula is one of Victoria's most important wine regions, located an hour's drive south of Melbourne on the southern coast of Australia. It is one of Australia's coolest winegrowing regions and elegant Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines are the main output, a far cry from the full-bodied Shiraz wines the country is famous for.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery Chardonnays are made using oak and are produced in California, Burgundy, and Australia. Unoaked chardonnays such as Chablis and those produced in Chile, New Zealand, and other parts of France are leaner and often crisp and mineraly, with delicate flavors. By law, if a label says “Chablis,” it must be Chardonnay.
