Here we have a wine with its head in the clouds, well almost. Hailing from the Orange wine region of NSW, it's grown at 900m up the side of Mount Canobolas, so it is a super cool Chardonnay. Scents of white stone fruits and lemon citrus swirl around the glass, whilst the palate is lighter-bodied, lightly-oaked and dry with that citrus pushing through again to a dry, minerally finish.
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Estate-grown, whole bunch-pressed with minimum juice settling, wild yeast barrel-fermented in French oak (25% new), then maturation in barrel for 10 months, batonnage for 8 months. Good fruit and oak balance and integration; white peach, grapefruit and green pineapple flavours are enhanced by bright, slippery acidity, the finish long and well balanced.Drink by 2019
Aromas: Delightful peach, grapefruit and pineapple aromas.
Palate: Peach, grapefruit and pineapple flavours are enhanced by zippy acidity. The finish is long, lingering and well-balanced.
