2018 Regional Blend Chardonnay, Tumbarumba, NSW
2018 Tumbarumba Chardonnay, Tumbarumba, NSW
Chardonnay, the greatest white wine in the world.
The Tumbarumba Chardonnay is fermented entirely in Stainless steel. The wine displays citrus and grapefruit characters in spades. The palate is vibrant with an explosion of grapefruit and white peaches and has a fine backbone of acidity which keeps the wine fresh and crunchy.
Food & Serving Suggestions
This style of chardonnay lends itself to classic pairings. Oysters perhaps being the most obvious one but any light seafood would pair perfectly with this wine.
The fruit is grown on the Maragle vineyard in the southern corner of Tumbarumba. The vineyard lies at 450m / asl on light decomposed granite soils.
The fruit was hand picked and lightly pressed to stainless steel foil fermentation. The wine then matured in this vessel for 10 months on gross lees prior to bottling.
