My Yarra Valley Experience
This is the first time I’ve done a concentrated amount of wine tasting without my WineChatty compatriots. I am usually the silent member lurking in the back while others do the talking. Wine tasting can be intimidating because there is a certain jargon that helps to make sense and communicate. I am far less confident in talking about wine than drinking it (no problems there!).
2. Chardonnays definitely are not as heavy oaked as I’m used to. Seems my palate for chardonnays is conditioned for heavy oak and butter. Yarra Valley chardonnays tend to be a lot more subtle and much more tight in the body. I enjoyed the chardonnays however it might take a bit of personal toning down for me to appreciate them fully.
