Ben Haines 2020 Gruyere White (Yarra Valley)

This blend of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir draws comparisons to a still Champagne in both the blend and the flavor profile. Pale in color, it's a little reductive at first but soon opens in the glass to offer lemon-lime, autumn orchard fruit, buttered brioche and a warm gravel character. It's a slightly odd if not unappealing nose. The palate is creamy with pointy-shouldered acidity and an herbal, green vegetal bass note. Christina Pickard
