Description

Sourced from one of Tumbarumba’s finest vineyards nestled in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains in NSW, at an elevation between 500-650m.

Tasting Note

Our Tumbarumba Chardonnay displays the classic cool climate citrus and melon intensity of the region, with subtle smoky oak in support. A full flavoured wine with a long, complex finish.

Vineyard

The fruit was sourced from Tumbarumba, Coppabella Vineyard. The vines are all V1 clone. Fruit was hand-picked in mid-March, at around 13.5 be.

Winemaking

In an effort to build more complexity into our Chardonnay this year, 100% of it underwent malolactic fermentation and 50% of it was barrel matured in a combination of new and 2-3 year old barrels. This has resulted in a beautifully textured wine with elegant citrus and melon fruit and complex honeyed, cream and biscuit notes.

Cellaring

Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 3-5 years.

Food Match

This elegant wine is an ideal match for shellfish, poultry, and soft creamy cheeses.
