The Allinda Chardonnay 2016

Allinda are a small northern Yarra winery, nestled in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Notably, they’re into biological farming, which I can definitely get on board with. Biological farming is independent of any certification, organic or biodynamic practice, but takes the core philosophy of more attention to the vineyard and runs with it. Essentially, you’re looking after your land’s biology, from microbia to insects - all animal life, in fact. The basic idea is that if you look after the good bacteria, good yeast, good insects, good mammals… they’ll proliferate and look after your vines.

So it’s no surprise that their wines are made to be pure expressions of the vineyard.

At the Tasting Bench

This wine’s youthful, very tightly wound. More oak- and lees-derived texture perhaps expected, but it’s probably because it’s yet to Jack-in-the-Box out of the glass. The fruit is very Yarra, though - it’s oatmeal, nougat, macadamia, with lemon juice and nashi pear overlays. There’s silence around the Tasting Bench as it’s tasted, because it’s a wine that deserves consideration. It’s a serious wine, from its old school label to the way it’s constructed. I reckon it needs a few years in bottle to loosen up ready for the dance floor, but when it does start grooving it might just bust out a breakdance. Allinda deserves your time and consideration.
