Mudgee, New South Wales
Much evidence points to Mudgee being the first region to plant Chardonnay grapes in Australia. There is unarguably now a wealth of premium, mature Chardonnay vines in the region available to make exceptional Chardonnays. The fruit for this wine comes from a vineyard to the east of Mudgee at an elevation of 900m. It is a great example of this noble variety and claimed the Top of Class marks at the 2008 Mudgee Wine Show.
Pale yellow in colour.
Aromas of fig, white peach and citrus combine with a delicate background of spicy French oak.
The palate has exceptional finesse with a long soft creamy mouthfeel balanced by crisp mineral acidity.
Drinking beautifully now, this Chardonnay will continue to develop complex bottle aged characters over the next 3-5 years.
