Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lovely buttery roundness and full-bodied weight yet very balanced. Packed with apricot and peach flavour with warm French toasty oak. A terrific bargain for lovers of classic New World Chardonnay.

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A nice "little" 100% chardonnay wine that is barrel fermented in French oak and has pale yellow straw like colour with aromas of peach, melon, citrus and vanilla. Flavours of melon, vanilla and apples standout and the mouthfeel is a buttery texture. This medium bodied Chardonnay has a long smooth fruit finish with a slight taste of residual sugar. It pairs well with creamy rose pasta dishes or just sipping on it's own on a warm summer evening.
Erin De Santiago rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Little Yering Chardonnay scored 90 points from James Halliday, the noted Australian wine expert. This wine exhibits all the characteristics you hope for in a New World Chardonnay without being an "oak bomb" as so many California Chardonnays are. The Little Yering 2008 Chardonnay is 100% Chardonnay grapes it is fermented in French Oak. The wine has a pleasing blend of mineral and apricot flavors, with a nutty oak finish.
Little Yering has a very big pedigree. Growing up in the shadow of one of Australia's most prestigious wine names isn't easy you know. No wonder this little wine is such an over-achiever, it's got the family name to uphold. Hand crafted from 100% Yarra Valley Chardonnay, Little Yering Chardonnay has spent its childhod in French Oak. This wine has lifted citrus aromas, a touch of spicy, nutty oak and a fine, bright, refreshing palate.
