Ever since the Mo├ęt Hennessy group landed on our shores and set-up shop in the Yarra valley, the Domain Chandon winery has certainly made its mark and positioned itself to be an institution of the Yarra Valley region. Sparkling wine is what this winery is famous for but there is also selection of still wines.
The tasting consists of six wines but these are rotated through the list so on your next visit there is likely to be a whole new range of wines to try. A tasting fee of $5 is refundable against any bottle purchase. I began with the Blanc de Blancs made from 100% Chardonnay which was crisp, clean with citrus tones compared to the Gauntlet which was made from 100% Pinot grapes and was more complex. Both sparklings were very tasty but if I had to choose, the Gauntlet would win. The wines also included a Chardonnay, a Pinot and a Sparkling Pinot Shiraz to finish.
My French host was very good but the crowds got to me a bit so we decided to explore the surrounds. A path leads up above the working winery with an interactive display, or if you follow down another darken path it leads to the barrel room and even lower to the riddling room. A restaurant sits to the side of the tasting room with yummy dishes matched to the wines of Chandon.
My advice, if you can manage it is to visit on a weekday when the crowds will certainly be less.

    I have always wanted to visit Domaine and wasn’t disappointed. The view from the tasting room was stunning and the wines made it a fantastic experience. Lived up to the reputation as having some of Australia’s best sparklings. Will be back.
