Tasting Note

A powerful wine with great fruit intensity matched and balanced by creamy rich texture and the wonderful crisp slatey natural acidity of Tumbarumba. The melon and stone fruit flavours are perfectly ripe with a pure line of grapefruit acidity that drives the wine to fantastic depth and length, with an incredibly long, fresh and vibrant finish.

Online exclusive: this wine is available to buy on our website, and not in our Bath shop. If you wish to collect from our shop, simply order online and select the ‘free collection’ option at the checkout. Your wine will be available for you to collect within three business days.

Winemaking

Selected blocks from elevated east facing vineyards from across the Tumbarumba region were handpicked and whole bunch pressed; full grape solids and some settling was used with a combination of natural indigenous yeast and inoculated yeast. All parcels were separately barrel fermented in French oak barriques with 40% new oak and the balance older oak. Post fermentation stirring ‘batonnage’ was used to build texture and length, and then maturation was completed on lees in barrel for 9 months. No malolactic fermentation was used in order to retain the fantastic crisp slatey acidity of Tumbarumba Chardonnay. Barrels were selected individually for the blend and the wine was stabilised, gently fined and filtered before bottling.

Press

  • 95/100 - Pale straw-green; an aristocratic chardonnay, if there can be such a thing; complex, yet fruit-driven, bright acidity; enviable length and purity.
