Winemaker's Notes

Some of the best expressions of Chardonnay are grown in a very cool climate. Tumbarumba is one of the few places in the Southern Hemisphere where world class quality of this varietal is grown. TASTING NOTES Fresh acidity with flavours of peach and citrus balanced by rich and refined oak. WINEMAKER COMMENTS: Produced solely from grapes grown in the cool climate, high altitude region of Tumbarumba. The Maragle Creek vineyard sits at 410m, clone I10V1 was planted on red granite over clay loam. This premier parcel was cool fermented and left on lees for 7 months of maturation with subtle battonage. Matured in the finest quality Francois Frères oak barrels from Saint-Romain in Burgundy. The resulting wine has a succulent yet fine linear structure with fresh acidity and complex lingering flavour. Limited production 220 cases.
