About: The fruit is from our established vineyard in Tumbarumba (planted in 1993). This high altitude region is renowned for producing outstanding quality Chardonnay. This wine is no exception and delivers exceptional value at this price point.
Viticulture: The fruit was harvested at two stages of ripeness. The first pick provided grapefruit and citrus character with zingy acidity while the second contributed power and length.
Wine making: 100% free-run juice, partially barrel fermented with partial batonage.
Tasting Notes: The palate is long and elegant with cool climate zesty varietal flavours knitting in neatly with subtle toasty French oak. Zesty lemon and citrus with cashew undertones. A lovely delicate weight with good length.
