Winner of 5 Gold Medals; Gold at the 2017 Rutherglen Wine Show, 2017 and 2018 Tumbarumba Wine Show, 2018 Canberra National Wine Show and 2018 NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show. Hailing from the high-altitude region of Tumbarumba, this is a full bodied white wine from a very challenging vintage throughout Australia, exemplifying why Tumbarumba has become known as a premium Chardonnay producing region. Bright straw yellow with a youthful green tinge. Lifted aroma of cashew and creamy lanolin with complex battonage notes. A very spicy and full palate with a tight and balanced acid structure supported by seasoned French oak. This Chardonnay was barrel fermented by natural ‘wild’ yeast in new and seasoned French Oak barriques. 100% preservative free and zero additions, making this wine a 'Natural' style of wine. Drink now or age for up to 8 years.

A steady hand of both flavour and funk makes for attractive drinking. This mines a healthy zone. White peach, slate, cedar wood and fennel notes. Juicy finish. Nicely done.
