Notes from Bob and Tom.
Our best ever straight chardonnay which is a blend of two different vineyards. That being Mount Panorama Vineyard in Bathurst and Worth of Mouth Vineyard in Orange. This wine epitomises the true essence of cool climate chardonnay, that being good flavour ripeness and acid at moderate baume/alcohol levels. This like the riesling sees one of our two best old french oak barrels and is aged on the lees until the following vintage where the barrel is emptied and then refilled with more juice (ultimate natural wine tbh, as no cleaning agents are used to sanitise the barrels between fills). Drinking great now, but has plenty of life still remaining.
