Grapes are picked off the most distinguished Tumbarumba site at full physiological ripeness, to create a generously proportioned Chardonnay for enthusiasts who indulge in the big flavourful styles. Parcels are pressed, a component is sent immediately to oak, for up to a fortnight of vinification at cooler temperatures, preserving delicate flavours while infusing textural richness. Upon completion, batches are treated to a regimen of regular lees stirring during several months of maturation, half the barrels complete a course of full malolactic, adding complexity and contributing splendid mouthfeel.
Straw hues. Intense cashew and butternut bouquets, honeycomb and yeasty lemon flan. A well structured palate of rich creamy textures around a core of peach and nectarine fruit flavours, perfectly complimented by secondary autolysis characters of nougat and toasted nuts, lingering on a persistent, flavourful finish.
