  • Product Description

    • Vineyard Region Tumbarumba, NSW
    • Vintage ConditionsExcellent fine spring weather conditions, with below average temperatures delayed flowering until the end of November. No significant frost events were experienced in the region and the usual cool nights and warm days ensured even ripening across the entire Tumbarumba area. The brisk cool nights, where temperatures typically plummet to 4-5°C during the ripening period, is one of secrets to the success of Chardonnay in the region. The cooler evening temperatures helped to retain natural fruit acidity and provide for slow flavour development leading up to harvest.
    • Grape Varietal Chardonnay
    • Vinification and Maturation n 2010, two different vineyards were specifically selected for this award winning wine based on vine health and balance. These vineyards were meticulously managed, with diligent shoot thinning and crop balancing to ensure the best conditions for fruit ripening. At flavour ripeness, the fruit was hand-picked in the cool of the early morning and placed into refrigeration before being delivered directly to the winery. After a short period of intense cooling, the fruit was gently pressed at a temperature of between 4-6°C, thus allowing for minimal phenolic extraction and oxidation, with only the purest free run juice collected. A short cold settling occurred, before racking to barrel with varying levels of natural solids. Around half of this wine was allowed to ferment naturally, while the remainder was inoculated with a Chardonnay specific yeast strain, designed to enhance the power and structure of the wine. A fermentation time of 14 to 16 days in no more than 35 percent new French oak barriques and hogsheads occurred, before a program of regular battonage was implemented. After the desired intensity of fruit and palate weight was reached, each barrel was individually analyzed and adjusted prior to its maturation on full yeast less. After 14 months in maturation, each barrel was assessed and the wine was then blended.
    • Winemaker Andrew Higgins's Notes
    • Colour Pale straw.
    • Aroma Intense nectarine, white peach and lime citrus dominate the aromatics with secondary characters of rockmelon and honeydew. Supporting this fruit and providing excellent complexity are some cashew nut nuances, wrapped around gun flint and intriguing wild fermentation notes.
    • Palate The wonderful granite soils of Tumbarumba have provided a wine of immense structure and amazing fruit intensity. High concentrations of fruit show through on the palate which is superbly balanced with creamy, textural layers. A wonderfully long, intense palate which finishes fresh and clean.
