Pretty Good

Known as the “winemaker`s wine”, the delight is light yellow in colour. The aromatic nose slowly unfurls in the glass and reveals fruit, grapefruit flavours, apple, oak, and herbal traces.  It is soft and slightly sweet, with a broad but well-balanced palate offering notes of apple and the subtle use of oak. Bass River Single Vineyard Chardonnay is usually partnered with butternut squash risotto, Japanese-style pork belly, roast chicken with honey-sesame carrots, aged cheeses, mushrooms, or roast turkey.

WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

In the relatively ideal cool climate of the Gippsland wine region, the small Bass River Single Vineyard sits on 44-hectares of a gently sloping vineyard, a third of which is devoted to viticulture. Here, we find such varieties as Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay all treated with equal care, as the Butera family's ultimate goal is "to produce the best fruit possible". A father-and-son tandem, Pasquale, and Frank both see to the viticulture and winemaking aspect of this passion-driven undertaking. Began in 1983, it took several years before they completed their House Block and River Block, two valuable additions which have aided in the production of premium wine embodying variety, region and season, at the same time establishing for themselves a niche in the winemaking arena.
