Sentio Beechworth Chardonnay 6pk 2016
A local Beechworth boy, Chris Catlow grew up amongst the vineyards of the region, and was destined to one day become the rising winemaking star of the region. Yearly trips to Burgundy to work vintage with Benjamin Leroux have taught Chris the importance of site, thus Sentio wines are always an expression of single vineyard wines. Founding his own label in 2013, Chris is amongst an exciting group of young winemakers emerging from North-East Victoria. Working out of an abandoned asylum in the middle of Beechworth, he is helping to reshaping the narrative of the region.
Sentio’s Beechworth chardonnay is in fine form.
Talk about balance. And pitch. This gets things about as right as can be. The perfect combination of flavour and drive, texture and complexity. Grapefruit, peach, cedarwood and honeysuckle, with candied almond characters working in beautifully. Gorgeous wine. Campbell Mattinson- Winefront
