This wine was made from three clones of Chardonnay which were grown on our Black Spur vineyard at Healesville. A classic example of cool climate Yarra Valley Chardonnay, the wine exhibits characters of lemon, honeysuckle and limestone. The textured palate is constructed by the winemaking actions. It is the lees stirring, which contributes to the creaminess, while the 9 months maturation in French oak lends spicy savoury flavour.
Our winery’s distinctive name echoes that given to a farm in the town of Craigo in Scotland. Where our ancestors settled alongside the docking point for the ferry that crossed the North Esk River. The Boat O’Craigo name and tradition have drifted across seas to settle and book-end Victoria’s burgeoning Yarra Valley with two magnificent vineyards, one in Healesville and the other in Kangaroo Ground. One red, the other white.
